A Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) mobile court in Asaba, the Delta State capital, has convicted three drivers who violated traffic regulations during the last Eid-el-Kabir
The convicts, now at the prisons custody in Ogwashi-Uku, were sentenced to two months imprisonment by the presiding magistrate, Ghomorai Victoria, who gave an option of fine to two of the violators while one was without the option of fine.
Magistrate Ghomorai cautioned and discharged three other traffic offenders while another 109 violators ,who pleaded liable to traffic offences ,were fined.
The state sector commander, Rindom Kumven, said on Tuesday that the drivers were charged with different offences ,ranging from assault, over loading, lack of caution signs, dangerous driving among others
He, however, vowed that the command will not rest on its oars in making sure that the roads are sanitised, adding that the special operations will be done every month with a mobile court to prosecute traffic violators.
Kumven said that two of the convicted offenders who were jailed for two months with the option of fine, have not been able to fulfill the imposed fines, hence, they were sent to the prisons at Ogwashi-Uku.
The sector commander further said the command had already mobilised its men at ensuring safety on the roads during the “ember” months .
He, however, urged motorists to drive carefully by observing basic traffic rules and ensured that their vehicles are road worthy .
