SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION

Summary

The existing approach of decentralised road traffic offence information is not efficient as having single integrated road traffic offence information enhances fast, timely and secured accessibility and sharing of road traffic offence information for the agency’s decision making. Manual means of identifying offender with only information about an offender is not enough, Identifying road traffic offenders with their pictorial images will aid the agency in authentic documentation and avoid prosecuting wrong persons. In the same line, as pragmatic beings who believe what they see, showing offender a display diagram sketch of his crime will convince him .This also will provide forensic evidence that will facilitate prosecutions. The proposed model is anticipated to offer an improved solution in road traffic offence information management in real time despite the geographical locations. If the proposed model will be implemented it is expected to improve transparency and accountability and therefore strengthening road safety.

The system is designed using Object Oriented Analysis and Design and Unified Modelling Language was used to bring the view to real life situation. Top down approach was adopted as the implementation approach for this project research. This involves breaking complex system into subsystems and then into modules for easy study and understanding. The system architecture is basically divided into three basic parts. The first is the front end that shows the user interface designed with PHP, HTML and JavaScript, the back end which hold the database server and different tables, at the middle is the internet Information Service or application server using the Apache server; which provides the connectivity between the front end and the back end. The user interfaces are interactive and provisions are made for security of data stored. The use of the system is relatively simple and the I.T knowledge requirement for its usage is relatively minimal.

The system is reusable, meaning that it can be further expanded or more other features can still be added into the system to strengthen and better the system.

Review of Achievements

Decentralised road traffic offence information is not efficient as having single integrated road traffic offence information enhances fast, timely and secured accessibility and sharing of road traffic offence information for FRSC’s management and decision making. Manual means of identifying offender with only information about an offender is poor. Identifying road traffic offenders with their pictorial images will aid the agency in authentic documentation and avoid prosecuting wrong persons. In the same line, as pragmatic beings who believe what they see, showing offender a display diagram sketch of his crime will convince him. This also will provide forensic evidence that will facilitate prosecutions. The proposed model is anticipated to offer an improved solution in road traffic offence information management in real time despite the geographical locations. If the proposed model will be implemented it is expected to improve transparency and accountability and therefore strengthening road safety. Figure 5.1 depicts prospective users’ assessment (in %) of the proposed model.

Prospective users’ opinions in rating the practicability of the proposed system was reviewed and analyzed. In summary, the results showed that, the proposed model’s advantages would overweigh that of the existing system. Few parameters were used for assessing proposed system to see whether it will improve; Reliability, Accountability, Transparency, Road Safety and how feasible would the solution be.

Areas of Application of Work

FRSC, the leading and coordinating charged with the responsibility of playing role as the key driver of all road safety efforts in Nigeria. While this is essential for achieving the goal of the road traffic offence safe system approach, unfortunately it has become unattainable due to its current involvement in managing road traffic offence at operational level, a position it shares with several other agencies also duly empowered to perform similar functions.

While a shared road safety responsibility provides the benefits of coverage where cross-functional gaps exist, it portends the dangers of role- submergence and conflict which may arise out of competing interests. It is disturbing that such conflicts currently characterize road traffic offence information management activities in Nigeria. For instance, the Nigeria Police Force is constitutionally empowered to act as the primary enforcement agency of all traffic laws and regulations of the Federal, State and Local governments in the country. This function it performs through its Motor Traffic Division. Thus like the FRSC, the Police carries out road patrols, vehicle checks, and prosecute traffic offenders. The Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO) is constitutionally mandated to issue and renew Licences for all private and commercial vehicle drivers, and issue such permits as Hackney Carriages, Stage Carriages, and Goods Carriages. They also regulate fares and register new vehicles and keep a register of such in all states of the Federation. It is with this body that FRSC faces the greatest conflict especially in carrying out some of its important road safety activities. There are other Federal Ministries (e.g. Transport, Works), State Ministries e.g. Works and Transport; Transport Regulatory Authorities; Local Government Councils; and Trade Unions e.g. National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) who are empowered to play either persuasive, preventive or punitive safety roles in the country. Conventionally, the FRSC is expected to coordinate the activities of these bodies in order to improve road safety, but their linkages are either nonexistent or at best weak and in a few cases they even operate at cross-purposes.

Road traffic offence information management system deals with road traffic offence information and how better to manage the information for the purpose of ensuring road traffic safety. The system can be better applied in the road traffic offence documentation section of FRSC units, sectors and zonal commands.

Recommendations

Federal Road Safety Corps as the lead and coordinating agency for road safety management in Nigeria is the key driver of all road safety efforts in Nigeria. This has become unattainable due to its current involvement in managing road safety at operational level, a position it shares with several other agencies like the Nigeria Police Force, the Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIO), Works and Transport; Transport Regulatory Authorities, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) also duly empowered to perform similar functions this portends the dangers of role- submergence and conflict which may arise out of competing interests. FRSC should coordinate the activities of these bodies in order to improve road traffic offence information management.

  • Information and Communication Technology seminar training and retraining should be giving to staff of the FRSC so as to be abreast with international road safety
  • Public enlightenment on dangers of road traffic offence and stipulated penalties should be common jingle in the Telecommunication companies should also join the queue of enlightening their network users.
  • Researches on better way to improve road traffic offence information management should be encouraged and supported by

Conclusion

FRSC, plays the role as the leading and coordinating agency for road safety management in Nigeria, Unfortunately this has become unattainable due to its current involvement in managing road safety at operational level; a position it shares with several other agencies also duly empowered to perform similar functions. Though shared road safety responsibility provides the benefits of coverage where cross-functional gaps exist, it also portends danger in role submergence and conflict which may arise out of competing interests. It is disturbing to note that such conflict currently characterize road traffic offence information management in Nigeria. The main challenge of implementing road traffic offence information management in any developing country is to fully embrace improved information and communication technology in road traffic information management, especially as regards to offence management. This will go a long way to reduce incessant accidents in Nigeria.

The research shows that significant reduction of road crashes can be achieved by the prudent management of road traffic offence information through application of adequate ICT infrastructure, increasing access to road safety information. Not just amassing huge data for road safety management, every electronic data, including sensitive road traffic offence information is useless if it is not accessible and proper identification of road traffic offenders made during documentation to ensure reliability and credibility of the process.

The way in which all officials involved would use the technology and mechanisms provided, will determine the system’s effectiveness in enforcing road traffic offence management control. The integrity and dedication of these officials are among important factors in our struggle against road traffic offences. It is trusted that the efforts and investment in Road Traffic Offence

Information Management System will result in the much-needed positive benefits toward road traffic offences and accidents reduction in Nigeria.
