Traffic Defaulters Receives Punishment In Edo


Seven motorists have completed their corporal punishments after they defaulted traffic laws on the state roads.

Naija News understands that the motorists were earlier arrested at several parts of the state for defaulting the traffic laws in Benin city, the Edo state capital.

The motorists who were arrested by the Edo State Traffic Control Management Agency (EDTSMA) were arraigned before a mobile court where they were ordered to serve corporal punishments.

The traffic offenders were forced to cut grasses and sweep the road as punishment for committing various kinds of traffic offences in the state.

The Edo state Head of Operations, EDTSMA, Osamuyi Macaulay, in a chat with journalists, said the community service is a new measure introduced by the agency to discourage motorists from flouting traffic rules and regulations.

He said when traffic offenders are arrested, they will be made to undergo community service such as sweeping, cleaning of drainage, among other options.

He added that other measures that will be introduced will include payment of fines.
