The Federal Road Safety Corps(FRSC) says it has concluded processes toward the full implementation of 3 number plates for articulated vehicles.
The move is part of efforts geared toward enhancing national security and promoting ease of vehicle identification, and robust data management.

The Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday said it was statutory for articulated vehicles to have 3 number plates.

According to him, the number plates must be visibly placed at the front of the tractor, back of the tractor and the third number plate placed at the back of the trailer or tanker.

Kazeem stated that it was also to boost existing data on articulated vehicles, promote national security, enhance ease of identification and advance the objectives of the National Vehicle Identification Scheme (NVIS).

“It is important to note that the 3 number plates are essentially designed for designated vehicles alone.

“As such, vehicles other than articulated will only have 2 number plates placed at the front and rear of the vehicles for ease of identification, he said.

The Corps Public Education Officer quoted the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi as saying that the Corps was working endlessly to ensure that all articulated vehicles were captured in the NVIS portal.

He said it would also boost the information base and make identification of such vehicles very easy for intelligence gathering and security of road users

Kazeem called on the motoring public to always tune in to the National Traffic Radio 107.1FM, to report any articulated vehicle sighted without the required 3 number plates, obstruction or any emergency noticed on the road for immediate action.

“The Station can also be reached through its Social Media Handles as follows; WHATSAPP 08052997848, FACEBOOK TRAFFICRADIO 1, TWITTER @TRAFFICRADIO 1, INSTAGRAM TRAFFICRADIO 1.
