Payment of traffic fines with POS, at patrol points illegal – FRSC
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) said it does not receive payment for fines on traffic offences through Point of Sale (PoS) machines.
FRSC public education officer Bisi Kazeem in a statement said the corps does not also “permit the use of POS machines nor receive payment for fines of traffic offences on patrol points.”
Kazeem said the E-Tablet is part of efforts to introduce technology into its operations and “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.
The corps explained that the introduction of the device is targeted 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,” Kazeem said.
“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 3 in one android device that was brought into the operational front in compliance with global best practices on electronic ticketing.”
The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Ali Biu, Kazeem said reiterated that the motoring public should note that the Corps does not use POS machines but a digitalized E-ticketing device which at the moment enhances ease of doing business.
