The Federal Road Safety Commission FRSC has cautioned owners and drivers of articulated vehicles against non adherence to Minimum Safety Standard and indiscriminate parking along the roads.
The FCT Sector Commander of FRSC, Mr Gora Wobin gave the advice at a forum in Abuja.
While acknowledging the role of articulated vehicles in the transportation of goods and services in the country , the FRSC sector commander maintained that any unlatched vehicle with containers would be impounded and the driver also prosecuted.
Mr Gora who also described indiscriminate parking of trailers and lorries along the Zuba – Gwagwalada- Yangoji – Abaji express way as worrisome said government was making frantic efforts at providing a place for articulated vehicles drivers to park and take some rest while on transit.
According to him, the measure is towards ensuring free flow of traffic at that corridor.
Mr Gora assured road users that FRSC would continue to meet with all stakeholders in the transport sector for effective traffic control in the Federal Capital Territory.
