E-Enforcement to Eradicate Fake Driver's Licence in Nigeria
The Directorate Of Road Traffic Services has stated that its electronic enforcement of vehicles which would commence in August in the Federal Capital Territory would target the elimination of both production and circulation of fake driver's license, security of vehicles and reduce the rigorous manual documentation of vehicles.
The DRTS director, Adamu Argungu (rtd), made the statement at the 2010 International Conference on Motor Vehicle Administration at the Yar' Adua Centre, Abuja.
The e- enforcement is the electronic enforcement of vehicles plying the capital territory roads by using technology equipment to encode particulars of motorists for easy regulation.
He noted that the use of private vehicles to commit crime such as 'one chance' made the directorate invoke the relevant sections of the FCT road transport regulation that required taxis to be registered and painted in commercial taxi colour with security number. "This has become an effective means to which the crime associated with 'one chance' was curtailed to the barest minimum," he said.
