The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Boboye Oyeyemi, has said that the corps are out to take legal action against abusers of sirens and convoys in the country.
Boboye Oyeyemi made this statement during a news conference on the recently concluded end of the year activities in Abuja, NAN reports.
“We have seen a lot of people abusing the use of convoys and we have taken it up to the appropriate authority; this year, we would take a more drastic action.
“Abuse of convoys and sirens are abuse of freedom of movement and an intimidation to road users and citizens across the country and this act must stop.
“The use of Google map while driving is allowed, but hand-held driving and usage are offences associated with driving and anyone caught would face the law squarely.
“If you must use Google map while driving, you must get the car-holding phone devices which is both for your safety and for better usage of the device and the application”, Oyeyemi said.
