FRSC threatens to prosecute tipper drivers


Wole Olaniran, the assistant Corps Marshal has threatened to prosecute tipper drivers who engage in the business of carrying sand without cover.

Olaniran, who is in the charge to zone RS5 command of the agency comprising Edo, Delta and Anambra States said the practice of carrying sand without cover was a nuisance on the road and eventually lead to crashes.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Benin City, the FRSC officer however warned that tipper drivers who dump sand indiscriminately along the Benin Sapele bye-pass would henceforth be made to face the full wrath of the law.

He also warned those who dump refuse on the high way to desist from such acts because of the inherent hazards associated with it.
