The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Edo, according to a report from the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), has declared that Emotional Psychological Evaluation (EPE) will be carried out on Traffic offenders very soon.
This was disclosed by The State Sector Commander, Mr Anthony Oko, during the flag-off of the Ember Months Safety Campaign in Auchi, Edo, on Friday.
According to Oko, “Any driver that violates traffic laws will be arrested and thereafter referred to a government hospital for psychiatric test.”
He said that the commission were working hard to minimize road accidents, saying the task of ensuring that the roads, especially the highways, were accident free was a major challenge facing government.
He assured that great number of officers and special marshals would be deployed everywhere during the period of Yuletide, and that towing trucks and ambulances had also been provided in case of any road accident.
As noted in the report, Oko said, “We are going to man the road 24 hours in case of any eventuality, as we are approaching the Yuletide, we will do much better than the previous years and we are definitely going to
reduce road traffic crash within Edo.”
Mr Moses Bature, The Auchi Unit Commander is said to have earlier cautioned drivers to imbibe the culture of
defensive driving in order to arrive safely at their destinations, and appealed to all road users to ensure they comply with all traffic rules and regulations, and maintain their vehicles for safe driving and safe arrival in this Yuletide and beyond.
