He added that the special patrol teams have been given strict directives not to tolerate act of indiscipline by recalcitrant drivers, warning that appropriate sanctions would be applied against any violators of traffic rules and regulations during the special operations to serve as deterrence for others.

Kazeem added that as part of the Corps’ commitment to keeping the roads safer during the celebration, the Corps Marshal has given directives to the teams to put special focus on certain identified offences including Wrongful Overtaking, Use of Phone while Driving, Drivers Licence Violation, Lane indiscipline while they would embark on prompt removal of rickety vehicles; obstructions from the road and sanctioning of drivers with expired/ worn out tyres and those that operate without spare tyre among other offences.
