The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has come out to disclose that the corps doesn’t utilise Point of Sale (POS) machines in its operation, instead, it uses a new digitalised E-ticketing device for ease of doing business.
Naija News reports that the Corps Spokesperson, Bisi Kazeem in a statement issued on Thursday said officers of the corps are not even permitted to receive payments of fines for traffic offences at patrol points.
Kazeem noted that the corps uses a technology called digitalized E-ticketing device to enhance the ease of doing business and to fade out the manual booking sheet.
He observed that he wishes to let the public know that the E-Tablet is a digital booking device that is to replace the manual booking sheet way of recording traffic offenders’ information.
He said the development was in line with global best practices, adding that it is also a strategy to introduce technology into the corps’ operations.
Kazeem furthered that “As an ISO-certified organisation with global recognition for a 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 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.”
