By Tola Gbadamosi
The Ondo State Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has embarked on a two-day free check on motorists in a bid to create a public friendly corps in the state.
The free road safety check, The Hope Metro gathered, is put in place by the state command of the corps to assist and monitor members of the public in detecting the faults in their vehicles as well as advising them on what to do if faulty.
The sector Head of Operations, Mr Olusegun Ogungbemide, told The Hope Metro that the exercise is a quarterly event.
Ogungbemide said, “this is to ensure the motoring public in detecting faults in their vehicles. It is a free and friendly FRSC exercise.
“What we do is to stop vehicles by the men of the operatives on the road to carry out the exercise, checking the faults with our equipment.
“This event comes quarterly and it only lasts for two days to enable motorists to acknowledge the faults on ground. This is to show to the general public that we have their interest at heart, as we create this avenue for them to check.
He advised that when the people of the public see men of the operatives on the road they should be free to approach them to check their vehicles.
It is an intervention as Social Corporate Responsibility (CSR) of the FRSC within these periods. It is a normal patrol, so, when you see them, stop to ask them to check your car.
He advised the members of the general public to cooperate with the operatives any where they see them or stop to have a check on faults. He noted that after the two days, normal charges would continue.
