In a bid to reduce traffic congestion in the FCT, roads along the area 1 axis, the Directorates of Road Traffic Services (DRTS) popularly known as VIO has created a new command in Galadimawa.
Speaking to Blueprint Monday, the Commander in charge of the area, Mr. Samuel Osim assured motorists that the command would tackle the incessant traffic grid lock during the peak hours in Lakagoma roud around.
He appealed to the motoring public to abide by the FCT traffic laws, more especially, Keke and Okada operators, to be restricted in the areas permitted to conduct their business.
He said the command would begin enforcement very soon to track down violators even as he warned commercial drivers to use Abuja colour to enable VIO officers identify one chance syndicates and other criminal elements.
The area commander stated that last week, he held meeting with NURTW and leaders of Okada and park operators intimating them on the need to operate in a single park in the Lokogoma road to allow free flow of traffic.
Osim revealed that the command under his watch would not fold its arms to allow violation of traffic rules and regulations even as he warned against wrong parking and use of rickety vehicles along the road in the area.
The VIO officer solicited the support of head of sister agencies to tackle traffic violation and criminal activities that might crop up in Galadimawa and its environs.
