The Federal Road Safety Corps has denied the use of Point of Sale machines to receive payment for fines of traffic offenses on patrol points.
This was contained in a statement signed and made available by the Corps Spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem, on Thursday November 10.
FRSC explained that rather, they make use of a digitalised E-ticketing device to enhance ease of doing business.
The statement read in part, “As an ISO certified organisation with global recognition for lead role in road safety administration and traffic management, the Corps has over the years developed transformational initiatives focused on People, Processes and Technology. This development is strategic to the introduction of technology into its operations to 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.
“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 three in one android device that was brought into the operational front in compliance with global best practices on electronic ticketing.
“The introduction of the device targets 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.
“The Acting Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, is by this medium reiterating that the motoring public should note that the Corps does not use POS machines but a digitalised E-ticketing device which at the moment enhances ease of doing business.”
