The Federal Road Safety Corps on Friday inaugurated a special patrol team code-named ‘Cobra Squad’ in the Federal Capital Territory to check recalcitrant traffic law violators.

The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, said the move came a day before the planned nationwide enforcement of mental stability/psychological examination of traffic offenders.

He said the exercise would focus on life-threatening violations such as the use of a phone while driving, route violation, traffic light violation, dangerous driving, and overloading.

Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, while inaugurating the squad dedicated 10 well-equipped patrol motorcycles, five vans, and an ambulance to the exercise.

Oyeyemi said he would personally lead the FCT squad, adding that similar teams and logistics would be deployed subsequently at the zonal level before the end of July.

He explained that the special patrol would be outside the normal patrol activities of the Corps in the FCT and other parts of the country.
