Using Map While Driving is Allowed But Handheld Usage is an Offence— FRSC Boss

The Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, has lauded the use of Google map but cautioned against handheld driving usage of the map.

This is just as he said, that anyone caught by FRSC would also be arrested and prosecuted.

In a press release by Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Public Education Officer, FRSC, Oyeyemi made this disclosure on Wednesday at a news conference.

According to him, “The use of Google map while driving is allowed, but hand-held driving and usage are offences associated with driving and anyone caught would face the law squarely.

“If you must use Google map while driving, you must get the car-holding phone devices which is both for your safety and for better usage of the device and the application,’’ he said.

He reiterated that the law was very clear and offenders of any of the road traffic rules and regulations regardless of status would be penalised and would also be subjected to an emotional psychology evaluation.
