Impounded For Traffic Offences In Abuja – In eight-months, Over seventeen,000 automobiles had been

The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) Has Said That Its Ongoing Onslaught Against Growing Spate Of Traffic Violations In The Territory Had Yielded Results With About 17,112 Vehicles, 1,675 Motorcycles Impounded For Various Traffic Offences, Within Eight Months.  

 

Secretary Of FCT Transportation Secretariat, Kayode Opeifa, Who Disclosed This In Abuja, Said The Secretariat Through Its Newly Launched “Operation Giraffe” Had Intensified Surveillance On All The Roads Within The Territory To Restore Sanity By Enforcing Compliance With All Extant Traffic Rules.  

 

Regretting That Despite The Efforts Being Made To Sanitise The Transportation System In The Territory, Recklessness And Violations Of Regulations Had Remained The Order Of The Day Among Motorists, Opeifa Also Stated That Out Of All The Vehicles Operating In Abuja, Only 220,000 Were Registered. He Noted That His Office Had Given A Directive To Taxi Drivers In The Territory To Upgrade Their System And Ensure Compliance To The Standards.

 

The Secretary Explained That Some Of The Innovations Being Introduced Into The Taxi System Were To Capture The Biodata Of The Operators And The Owners To Ensure More Security In The System. According To Him, To Manage The System More Efficiently, Software Has Been Developed To Help Traffic Managers Track All Traffic Offenders Who Damn The Consequences And Defiantly Operate On The Roads.  

 

He Said: “we Have Developed Software That Will Help Traffic Managers Within 30 Seconds To Know Vehicles That Are Properly Registered. Our New Initiative, ‘Operation Giraffe,’ Is Focusing More On Vehicles That Do Not Have Abuja Registered Number Plate, Because Many Of Them Were Fake. We Have Also Increased The Number Of Traffic Officers From 20 To 350; The FRSC Has Also Deployed About 200 Personnel To Help In A Daily Traffic Management.”
