FINALLY!!! FRSC To Impound Trailers With Unlatched Containers


Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, the Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Saturday, issued a matching order to officers and men of the Corps to impound on sight any trailer found to be moving containers without proper latching.

Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, in a statement, noted that Corps Marshal vowed to deal decisively with drivers who engage in the practice of carriage of containers on flatbed trailers without proper latching on the highways.

The FRSC boss ordered immediate impoundment of such vehicles by patrol teams anytime they are sighted.

Speaking on the dangers of such to other road users, Oyeyemi said that apart from the dangers to lives and properties, these containers when they fall on the highways or any part of the road; can easily lead to unnecessary road obstruction that will cause undue hardship to motorists who will have much of their travelling time wasted on the road before the obstruction is cleared.
