The use of Point of Sale devices to collect penalties for traffic violations at patrol locations has been forbidden by the Federal Road Safety Corps.
This has been stated in a statement that Bisi Kazeem, the Corps spokesperson, approved and made accessible on November 10th.
Instead, they employ a digitalized E-ticketing system, according to FRSC, to make conducting business easier.
Part of the statement read:
“As an ISO-certified organization with global recognition for lead role in road safety administration and traffic management, the Corps has over the years developed transformational initiatives focused on People, Processes and Technology. This development is strategic to the introduction of technology into its operations to fade out the use of booking sheet which is a manual way of recording traffic offenders’ information and replace it with a digital booking device.
“In addition to the above and for better clarification on this technology, the Corps wishes to let the public know that the E-Tablet is a three in one android device that was brought into the operational front in compliance with global best practices on electronic ticketing.
“The introduction of the device targets at improving robust data collection and speeding up on-the-spot synchronisation of traffic offenders information into the national database. The device is a one stop shop for verification of the national driver’s license and the vehicle number plate as well as other FRSC products and services.
“The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, is by this medium reiterating that the motoring public should note that the Corps does not use POS machines but a digitalised E-ticketing device which at the moment enhances ease of doing business.”
