The Federal Road Safety Corps, says it will commence a clampdown on motorcycles and tricycles without number plates with effect from the 1st of August.
The Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi, who directed this action said it has become difficult to identify such category of vehicles when used to commit traffic and criminal offences.
He said this is a necessary step in ensuring the security of lives and properties of the citizens, by controlling and reducing the rate of crime.
The corp marshal said motorcycles and tricycles without number plates are not captured in the national vehicle database, hence, in the event of a crash or crime, cannot be traced.
The officer said efforts are already being made to sensitise all necessary parties.
