Drive With Earphones Or Airpods And Risk Six Months In Jail - FRSC Warns by Akinblogdotcom: 9:43am On Sep 04, 2021
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned drivers in Nigeria who like to receive or make phone calls while driving, regardless of any wireless gadget (Airpods or Earpiece), used for such communication stand a risk of getting a six-month jail term.



FRSC Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, disclosed this in an interview with Punch. Kazeem said driving requires total concentration and road users should not take any risk on their lives. He said it is illegal to make calls or receive the same while driving, according to the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2012.

“It is illegal. Driving entails 100 percent concentration so you cannot be distracted. It is there in the regulation. It is clear from the provisions of Reg 166 (1) that it is illegal to make phone calls using EarPods earphones or whatever means.

It is also clear that a phone call is not restricted to a telephone conversation between two or more people.

Anything that will distract you while driving must be avoided. When we do public enlightenment, we even discourage drivers from talking to passengers which could cause distraction.

The law may not make it an offense but at the same time, it can distract you, even changing your cassette (while driving) can distract you and result in an accident. “He said

So once you are on Nigerian highways you are incommunicado, even with handsfree devices?
Brilliant!

The courts will decide.
