FRSC to stop disturbing drivers on seatbelt simply because a passenger is not on seatbelt

This petition had 6 supporters


Often on the high way, the Federal Road Safety Commission has stopped and booked  drivers who themselves are wearing their seatbelt for "seatbelt offence" simply because a front seat passenger was not wearing the seat belt or even removed his seatbelt while the driver is busy concentrating on his driving. The offence of driving without seatbelt cannot apply to a driver who is on seatbelt simply because a passenger especially an adult passenger refused to wear his seatbelt or removed same while the driver is on his driving. In civilized nations, a driver can only ensure and held responsible where the front seat passenger is below 14 years but in Nigeria, a driver is punished and made to pay a fine of #2000 because an adult front seat passenger is not seatbelt or refused to wear same. There should be a law punishing the passenger who is not wearing seatbelt and not an innocent driver.
