Metro Nigerians to Start Paying N100,000 For Disobeying Traffic Laws- FRSC



Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has announced that traffic offenders will soon be paying N100,000 as penalty.

“You cannot arrest somebody for using a phone while driving and he pays N4,000 as penalty. And almost immediately he goes back to commit same offence", he said on Wednesday.

“Fines are supposed to serve as deterrent, which is why I said that I am in support of what the National Assembly is doing presently amending the Act of the FRSC to make the fines go up.

“I was not the one that initiated it, it is the National Assembly that initiated it and I am in support and I will make sure that before the middle of next year this is pass into law.

“I believe that by the time traffic offenders’ start paying between N50,000 and N100,000 for a single traffic offence, they will not want to commit such offence again,” he said.
