Accidents : FRSC to deploy radar guns along Sokoto-Gusau highway – Official


SOKOTO – The Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC) said that it would deploy radar guns along the Sokoto-Gusau highway to reduce road accidents during the yuletide.
The Zonal Commanding Officer of the Corps, Mr Olumide Olagunju said this during the decoration ceremony of nine newly-promoted officers of the corps under the Sokoto State Command in Sokoto.
“These specially made guns are equipment used to track all speeding vehicles to curb the menace of road traffic crashes.
“The radar guns are to be used to ensure that the motorists obey all traffic rules and regulations along all the highways.
“The zones in corps comprise Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara states. The corps has also embarked on special 24-hour patrols, tagged “operation velvet’’.
“We are doing this with the active collaboration of the police and other para-military agencies, and there is a mobile court which summarily tries and prosecutes all traffic offenders,” he added.
