On Thursday, the Federal Road Safety Corps, or FRSC, stated that it has not begun using point-of-sale (POS) devices to collect penalties for traffic violations at patrol stations.
The Corps’ public relations officer, Bisi Kazeem, noted that it was necessary to inform the public due to dishonest individuals who might use the Federal Road Safety Corps’ Electronic Booking Device (E-Tablet), which is intended for use by patrol agents to issue traffic tickets, as a Point of Sale (POS) machine to deceive people.
He claimed that the Corps has advanced in providing essential services to the populace and has developed transformational initiatives focused on people, processes, and technology. The Corps is an ISO-certified organization with a leading position in the administration of road safety and traffic management, he said.
He continued by saying that the device that could best serve the public needed to be introduced in order for the corps to increase reliable data collecting and speed up on-the-spot synchronization of information about traffic offenders into the national database.
