No fewer than 60 tricycles have been impounded in Edo state for non-possession of number plates and licences.
Mr Anthony Oko, Edo State Sector Commander, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) made this known in an interview in Benin on Wednesday.
Oko said the exercise followed the directive from the headquarters of the FRSC for an enforcement and clampdown on tricycles and motorcycles without number plates and licences.
He said that the exercise had been a success since its commencement in the state, saying that the exercise had become a wake-up call to operators who were yet to do the needful to do so.
He, however, said that no violator had been prosecuted as the mobile court aspect of the enforcement would be in the second phase of the exercise.
The sector commander said that from January till date, the command had prosecuted no fewer than 3,447 persons for various road traffic offences and violations.
He said that of the figure, 3,175 persons were convicted, while 272 persons were discharged.
Oko explained that the command was currently carrying out massive awareness campaign to sensitise motorists on the need to apply safety while on the road.
