Their fines are heavy. That's why

Let's not even talk about the stress of going to the bank, producing tax receipts and blah blah blah

You can pay fines as high as 20k.

If na you, you no go run?

You see VIO and FRSC, na twins dem be. Dem no dey carry gun but Nigerian drivers fear them more than all the security agencies in Nigeria herself.

They are very mean, they don't respect age, they don't have pity for a woman in labour or someone in critical condition. They don't care, what they're after is to dig a very large pothole in your pocket that has already made sinkhole in it before.

They are the devil we see with our koro-koro eyes.

If you're a VIO or FRSC personnel reading this, always have it in mind that HEAVEN IS FAR FROM YOU.

FRSC is even better. I haven't seen an FRSC fine that's greater than 5k.

The only annoying part with FRSC is that they make a mountain out of a mole hill, waste your time, demand bribes and if you refuse, they fine you.

But you see VIO, bribing them is expensive. Their fine is even more expensive.

I don't know about other states, but the one In Lagos have fines as high as 20k

Pray not to encounter them. Even after a year, you will be feeling very violated and angry. Whenever you remember it, you would fight back tears. No jokes.

Some people deserve it because Lagosians are very stubborn. They drive oneway and disregard traffic lights.

But what of their attitude of setting trap for people? Removing one way and no U-turn signs. They have even advanced to buying traveling boxes and standing where drivers can’t stop to book Uber rides. Any driver that makes the mistake of stopping there to pick them ehn…grin

VIO and FRSC are almost same thing, the only difference is that VIO came our from their mother's womb first before FRSC in the labour room.

Honestly, Lagos VIO people must be heavenly people if they fine's you just 20k, Onitsha VIO operate on the same frequency devil operates.

Onitsha VIO will fine you as if you're the one that advised Pontious Pilate to kill Jesus Christ or you're the one that advised Eve to eat that apple in the garden of Eden.

They are not twins in anyway. FRSC dey collect bribe steady. But you see VIO, dem no dey collect shishi. Once they catch you, you’re definitely going to their office and they won’t leave you till you pay hefty fines and rectify the infractions you got arrested for.

It's good to know they are doing their job, but the question is are they not going out of the way, or beyond what they are meant to do, with the way people commented about them above, you can imagine their high handedness especially when you factor in the Nigerian angle.

Nigerians are used to not obeying laws and bribing, hence the reason they are complaining.

Baba I just tire for those people, the one wey dey vex me pass na the young ones amongst them.

He/she will be smiling while talking with you and still be doing the work of village people on your head. One funny thing about them is that they hardly stop all those pure-water vehicles that has no light working on it anymore but, whenever they see a private car that everything is still intact they'll flag you down immediately.
