Officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) use electronic booking device as a one-stop shop to ease their activities, not point of sale (POS) machines, the corps said on Thursday.

Corps spokesman Bisi Kazeem said in a statement that the device which the public see with FRSC officials is an e-ticketing device.

He added that the device is being used for 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,” he added.

Kazeem said that the corps no longer use papers nor receive payment for fines for traffic offences booked at patrol points.

He said that electronic booking device (e-Tablet) was one of the corps’ technological breakthroughs.

“The Corps wishes to inform the general public that it does not use, nor permit the use of POS machines nor receive payment for fines of traffic offences on patrol points.

“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 faze out the use of booking sheet in recording traffic offenders information and replace it with a digital booking device,” he added.

Kazeem said that the “3 in one android device was brought into the operational front in compliance with global best practices on electronic ticketing”.
