Bauchi State’s Federal Traffic Safety Corps (FRSC) commander, Yusuf Abdullahi, has called for the use of sharia law to prosecute traffic violators in order to curb traffic accidents in the country. Abdullahi made the announcement Thursday during an interview with the Nigerian News Agency in Bauchi. In his opinion, the current laws regulating traffic accidents are not strict enough, so the introduction of sharia law in traffic regulation is necessary.
Abdullahi said the measure would encourage motorists to be more disciplined, encourage adherence to traffic rules and promote safe road behavior. It also stems a wave of nasty sights on the road caused by reckless driving, he said. “Let’s enforce sharia law on road accidents and people will wake up.
Our people are too careless and car owners don’t bother to check them. “If we do not enforce sharia law, many road users, especially in this region, will act without thinking twice before doing what they want. “Since most accidents are caused by negative attitudes of drivers and other road users, the introduction of sharia law will curb bad behavior.
“People don’t want to rest, they speed too much to make money. “If this law is introduced, an investigation will be conducted at the time of being involved in an accident, and the perpetrator and his family will be held accountable for whatever happens to that vehicle.
“If a driver dies in an accident, if convicted, the owner of the car will also be held responsible if it turns out that he didn’t do his homework before handing over the car.” “The current law works, but the extent to which it works is very important because in a country that enforces sharia law, even relatives and friends are not sure what to do and what to do.
“Because you’re pushing hiring behavior to a level where you can relate hiring behavior to something that isn’t ‘do,'” he said. Sharia law includes family members, so perpetrators are not the only ones to be punished, he said. “Increasing penalties for traffic offenders would go a long way in ensuring that drivers and other road users are contained and encouraging careful driving to avoid accidents.
He pointed out that while traditional law is ultimately not concerned with attitudes and actions and looks only at immediate events, Sharia law looks more deeply at recent events. . He said, “Sharia law will be improved. When you see the countries where it is practiced, your relatives and friends know that it should not be jeopardized, so it is everyone’s job.”
