The Federal Road Safety Corps has stated that it neither uses nor authorizes the use of Point of Sale devices on patrol points, nor does it accept payment for fines for traffic infractions.
This was stated in a statement that Bisi Kazeem, the Corps spokesperson, signed and made public on Thursday.
To improve business efficiency, the FRSC claimed that it used a digitalized E-ticketing technology.
The quote from the statement went as follows: “Over the years, the Corps has developed transformational initiatives focused on People, Processes, and Technology. The Corps is an ISO certified organization with global recognition for its leadership role in road safety administration and traffic management. The goal of this development is to gradually phase out the usage of booking sheets, a manual method of recording the details of traffic violators, and replace it with a digital booking device.
In addition to the foregoing, the Corps desires to make clear to the public that the E-Tablet is a three-in-one Android gadget that was introduced to the operational front in accordance with international best practices on electronic ticketing.
The device’s launch aims to increase reliable data collecting and hasten on-the-spot synchronization of traffic offenders’ information with the national database. The gadget is a one-stop shop for FRSC products and services, including the national driver’s license and vehicle number plate verification.
The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, reiterates that the driving public should be aware that the Corps does not employ POS machines, instead using a digitalized E-ticketing system that currently makes doing business easier.
