    FRSC officials have obsession with revenue collection.
    To do that they put their lives in danger by trying to stop a driver by force or by moving infront of the vehicle.
    Federal government should either take away the revenue collection from frsc, or hand them to states.
    Let there be no federal roads.
    Federal government can give grants for maintenance of interstate roads.
    Toll gates should belong states.
    Afterall FG collect road taxes and refuses to repair the roads.

    Sad for life gone.

    Around Abuja, FRSC members stand at high ways, no prior caution to stop fast moving vehicles.

    I personally warned one last week.

    Road Safety is not all about sit belt, C Caution and DL.

    The pot holes on the road should be of concern too

      Get out here. Are you living in Nigeria, where did you get power to charge your laptop? What you are repeating here are the things your girlfriend at home texted to you.

        My light is good and I am connected to Ikeja Disco.

        I pay my bills without fail.

        You don’t pay power bill, you don’t pay taxes yet you demand performance.

    This is sad and unfortunate. That said, the manner in which some officers of FRSC suddenly come up to stop a vehicle calls for concern. Some stand in the middle of the highway and, as if they forgot they are duty, suddenly move to the line of a vehicle’s motion to stop it. The whole thing, at times, looks suicidal.

      Don’t say suicidal. It sounds you are mocking the brave girls who carry out effective suicide bombings.
