The Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, has vowed to sanction motorists caught violating traffic rules.
The FCT Permanent Secretary, Engr. John Chukwu, who stated this yesterday at the first anniversary of the Abuja Computerised Vehicle Testing Services in Katampe District, warned that the era of motorists violating traffic lights is over.
He explained that the establishment of the Computerised Vehicle Testing Services was a huge success, as it has given motorists the opportunity to have a comprehensive knowledge of their vehicles.
Engr. Chukwu encouraged motorists who have not subjected their vehicles to the test to do so, as it will help in the prevention of accidents.
He identified the state of the road, attitude of the driver and state of the vehicle as the major causes of road accident.
However, the permanent secretary warned motorists to desist from parking on walkways and other unauthorised places, assuring them that the administration would apply appropriate sanctions on defaulters.
Chukwu instructed the FCT Directorate of Road Traffic Services to synergise with operators of the centre to ensure that all vehicles in the Territory are subjected to the ‘clinical diagnosis of the centre’ before roadworthiness certificates are issued.
Welcoming guests to the occasion, the Director of Administration and Finance, FCT Transportation Secretariat, Abdulhamid Mohammed Sulaiman, called on motorists to complement the huge resources invested in this project by making their vehicles available for testing.
