The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra State has restated its commitment to ridding the state roads of underaged driving.
The Sector Commander, Adeoye Irerewuyi disclosed this weekend to reporters following proliferation of underaged drivers, especially among tricycle riders in Awka and surrounding towns.
He explained that the Corps has strong road use laws which put legal driving age in Nigeria from 18 years and above.
He said, “We will leave no stone unturned in clearing the roads of both underaged and unlicensed users.
“Our mobile courts are always ready to eliminate such cases as most defaulters operate without a valid driver’s license.”
Reacting on motorists complain on difficulty in the processes of obtaining driver’s license, the FRSC boss assured simplification of the process.
“The whole process has been simplified from the initial phase to the final stage, with timeline for obtaining a valid license not taking longer than 14 days after the final process,” he said.
Irerewuyi also cautioned against wrong overtaking, revealing the several considerations to look out for before overtaking as contained in the modified highway code of the federal Republic of Nigeria.
