296 motorists fail FRSC psychological test out of 305 arrested

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Thursday said it had arrested 305 motorists for 345 life-threatening traffic offences since the launch of its Operation Cobra on July 1.

The Corps Marshal of the agency, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, who disclosed this in Abuja, said nine of the arrested offenders passed the psychological test administered on them.

This, according to him, means that their actions were as a result of willful violation of regulations.

Oyeyemi spoke at a one-day national workshop organised by the FRSC for driving school operators.

He reiterated the commitment of the FRSC to enforce the new policy of subjecting life-threatening traffic law offenders to psychological test.

According to him, the actions of such violators were deviation from the true nature of Nigerians as a “cultured, disciplined and enterprising people who have faith in life and those of others’’.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Operation Cobra is a new road safety enforcement policy of the FRSC designed to subject violators of certain traffic offences to mental stability evaluation.
The offences are use of phone while driving, route violation, traffic light violation, dangerous driving and overloading.
