Traffic management in Abuja to be restrategise by Police

By - - [ ]
The Directorate of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) has said that it is re strategising with the Police authorities and other relevant bodies in the FCT to instil discipline in road users.

This is according to a statement by Kalu Emetu, the Head, Public Relations DRTS popularly called Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.

The statement said this had become necessary as a result of the level at which motorists in the nation’s capital flouted traffic regulations.

It also said the FCT Police Commissioner, Bala Ciroma, who is the Chairman of the Ministerial Joint Task Force, said that there was the need to remind every stakeholder about their roles in ensuring a better traffic management in the territory.

Ciroma made the remarks during a parley in his office on Friday.

He explained that motorcycles and tricycles were banned together with the expert riders over a decade ago in the City centre.

He added that it remained unacceptable for any of them to be seen plying the restricted areas.

He said it became pertinent for the meeting to brainstorm on the best approach to have a more organised FCT as envisaged by the founding fathers.

The Joint Task Force Chairman noted that it was the major reason why the leadership of the motorcycle and tricycle associations were invited for the interaction to enable them to intimate their members on the development.

“Your members must not ply within the restricted zones, it is already a law in FCT among other traffic laws and violation of these laws henceforth will be seen as a serious offence and will be treated accordingly.’’

He urged the Chairmen of the tri-cycle and motor cycle associations to be part of the enforcement of the law.

He said the riders must adhere to the law for the territory to be sanitised and assume its proper status as planned.

He further said that the associations would first be given an opportunity to call their members to order while failure to comply would be treated according to the law.

The FCT Police boss also used the opportunity to call on unpainted taxi operators to desist from the act.

He said it was already against the law in FCT for anybody, no matter how highly placed, to use a vehicle not painted or registered for commercial purposes.

The meeting resolved that the Ministerial Joint Taskforce and other operational teams of the Directorate would expedite actions to ensure every traffic law was obeyed through a coordinated enforcement.

The Director, FCT DRTS, and Vice Chairman of the Task Force, Wadata Bodinga, commended stakeholders present at the meeting and the FCT Police Commissioner.

The meeting also resolved to commence immediate enlightenment talk show in all the major operational bases of the associations.
