The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Edo says it will soon commence an Emotional Psychological Evaluation (EPE) for all traffic offenders in the state.
The state Sector Commander, Mr Anthony Oko, made this known during the flag-off of the Ember Months Safety Campaign in Auchi, Edo.
Oko said any driver who contravened traffic laws would be arrested and referred to a psychiatric centre to ascertain the state of his mind.
“Any driver that violates traffic laws will be arrested and thereafter referred to a government hospital for psychiatric test,” he said.
Okon said the task of ensuring that the roads, especially the highways, were accident free was a major challenge facing government, and that the commission was working hard to minimise road accidents.
Speaking on preparations for a traffic free holiday during the Yuletide, the sector commander said officers had been positioned at strategic locations on the road where bottleneck was usually experienced.
