The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said on Friday that it has seized 373 vehicles with expired documents, old number plates and no driver’s license in Kaduna State.
This was disclosed by the FRSC Sector Commander in Kaduna State, Mr. Hafiz Mohammed who said the action was taken during a joint operation in Kaduna, Kafanchan and Zaria.
He also reported that 252 vehicles were seized in Kaduna, 41 in Kafanchan and 80 in Zaria. Mohammed laid emphasis on the need for motorists to register their vehicles and acquire new number plates.
“We still have cases of motorists with unregistered vehicle papers, including tricycles and motorcycles still ply our roads and perpetrate crimes unnoticed.
“If a registered vehicle is used to commit a crime, we can easily trace the person by logging into our database, using addresses of violators.
“The defaulters are given ample time to acquire the new number plates, driver’s license and renew their expired vehicles’ particulars’’ he said.
