The Federal Road Safety Commission. (FRSC) Lagos Sector Command has banned the use of phones by motorists while driving.

Olusegun Ogungbemide, FRSC Sector Commander, in a statement on Sunday, said the corps had noticed a rising disregard of traffic and safety regulations.

He listed other infractions as internet surfing, non-use of a seatbelt, rickety vehicles that are not roadworthy, lane shunting and general irresponsible driving culture.

The commander reiterated the National Road Traffic Regulations 2012 section 166 (1) on the use of communication devices while driving.

“No driver of a vehicle shall whilst the vehicle is in motion receive or makes a telephone call in any form. We have lost so many drivers and other innocent people due to distraction from the use of phones caused them while on the road.

“Peace-loving, responsible Lagosians and road users are also passing through a lot of pains due to the actions of these few who will not obey simple regulations to keep themselves alive”, the statement added.

Ogungbemide said the FSRC command cannot watch and allow illegality to strive.

The official added that all commands of the corps have been given the mandate to tackle all forms of road misconduct.
