BY Abdulgafar Oladimeji, Kano
Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) Kano sector command has disclosed that erring motorists would henceforth undergo psychiatric test.
The command’s Public Relations Officer, Kabir Ibrahim Daura in a statement issued in Kano yesterday said designated facilities where the tests would be conducted have been marked out.
He said the designated medical facilities would conduct test to ascertain the mental status of road users, in effort to protect lives of road users.
He stated that, route violation, overloading, use of phone while driving, traffic light/marking disobedience, constitute the offences that would attract imposition of the medical test on apprehended motorist.
Kabiru disclosed that, life threatening driving pattern and habitual offenders will undergo psychological ascertainment relative to his/her stability to drive safely on the road.
The statement cautioned road users to refrain from committing traffic offences, adding that, the conduct of the medical test on an erring driver may result in the termination of the driving license allotted to the erring driver.
“ FRSC over the years has embarked on several measures of road traffic dysfunctional deterrence, ranging from public education to subtle force, full enforcement as well as introduction of several strategy measures including the use of mobile courts, introduction of speed limiting device, all geared towards ensuring safer motoring environment.
“These efforts of the Corps are known to be yielding positive results but has been further noted that as one traffic challenge is being surmounted, another one reared its head; and this has compelled the Corps to reintroduce psychological test of traffic offenders”, Daura stated.
