36 drivers sent to Psychiatric hospital for beating traffic in Abuja

No fewer than 36 drivers in Abuja have been sent to psychiatric hospitals for proper examination after they beat traffic lights. Deputy Director / Chief Press Secretary of the Federal Capital Territory, Muhammad Sule, made this known in a press statement released yesterday October 10th.
“The FCT Police Command in collaboration with officers of the FCT Directorate of Road Traffic Services have so far arrested 36 motorists for beating traffic lights in the Federal Capital Territory and have been subjected them to psychiatric evaluation at the Karu Psychiatric Hospital.
This is sequel to the directive of the FCT Minister, Malam Muhammad Musa Bello, for the Nigeria Police Force, FCT Command to arrest any motorist that beats traffic lights in the Federal Capital Territory and be taken to psychiatric hospital for immediate test. All the motorists so far arrested and conveyed in ambulances to the hospital have undergone psychiatric tests at the hospital but were certified by the doctor to be medically fit. Those arrested have been made to face the consequences of their actions as they have been made to pay fine to serve as a deterrent after bearing the cost of the psychiatric test. Meanwhile, the culprits have also been made to attend a compulsory three-day lecture at the headquarters of the FCT Directorate of Road Traffic Services on the importance of complying with traffics signs and road markings. The exercise that commenced about 5 days ago (5/10/16) by the Police on the directive of the Minister is a continuous one as it has entered week two. It would be recalled that the Nigeria Police Force recently deployed very senior officers within the ranks of Assistant Superintendent of Police and Inspectors to man the speed bikes to ensure high level of discipline from them to curb impunity and work in disciplined, efficient and effective manner”the statement read

Complete waste of resources! Why not fine people for traffic offences? Why do we have to waste human and natural resources for things that do not make sense. This is exactly the price we pay for having incompetent leaders. An accident victim is taken to the hospital in the back of a rusted police vehicle and a traffic offender taken to a hospital in an ambulance. I pity this country Mtchewwww....

If they fail psychiatric evaluation, they will be sent to prison.

Big Head said...

plus the statement above read that the arrested drivers will bear the cost. So what waste of resources r u talking about? Not to mention hat they'll still be fined

FS said...

That's an outrageous law! People beat traffic lights for so many reasons. It might be an emergency (U however still get fined) but to subject offenders to a psychiatric evaluation is laughable. I would also suggest the same evaluation for whoever came up with the silly idea. U simply fine offenders to increase revenue and deter others.
