The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that motorists are only allowed to use Google map with the aid of car-holding phone devices.
The Cable reports that FRSC corps marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, said this on Wednesday, January 8, in Abuja.
Legit.ng gathers that the FRSC boss warned that anyone caught holding their phone in their hands while using the map will be arrested and prosecuted.
“The use of google map while driving is allowed, but hand-held driving and usage are offences associated with driving and anyone caught would face the law squarely,” Oyeyemi said.
According to Oyeyemi, using car-holding phone devices will ensure safe driving as there will be little or no distraction.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that the FRSC boss disclosed that traffic light violations by motorists would attract a fine of N50,000.
Oyeyemi who said the new fine would be effective in 2020 lamented that the offense was taking a worrisome dimension.
Oyeyemi said this while speaking at the first ‘ember month stakeholders forum’ organised by the FRSC.
He said that he had proposed to the Joint Tax Board that the traffic light violation fine should be increased from N4,000 to N50,000 to deter erring motorists.
