FRSC, Expired Tyres and the Need for Public Enlightenment
The Federal Road Safety Commission mandated by law to ensure drivers adhere to the safety rules on the road, has recently been clamping down on 'expired tyres'.
This has created concern in the country, as many road users who may not be aware of the developments, are hounded by the officials who are empowered to do so, with fines attached to it.
In view of these, the WebTV in this report engages the tyre sellers, a car owner, a mechanic and a lawyer to gain their understanding and insight on the reasons for the clampdown, offering a better approach.
They emphasize the need for effective sensitization of the public on the specification, dangers and adverse effects of using 'expired tyres', which the commission should give priority to.
