The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Oyo state said 630 vehicles were impounded by the command in the State for allegedly committing various road traffic offences between January to November.
The FRSC Sector Commander in the state, Joshua Adekanye, made this known in Ibadan.
Mr Adekanye said that most of the vehicles were impounded for not having drivers licences and other valid vehicle papers.
The sector commander said 4,005 offenders were also apprehended for committing various road traffic offences in the state during the period.
He further said that about 4,186 road traffic offences were committed, adding that the prevalence among the offences included wrongful overtaking and use of phone while driving.
Others were use of expired tyres, lane violation, seat belt violation and speed violation.
Mr Adekanye called on motorists to ensure that their vehicles had the required papers before plying the road and to obey traffic rules and regulations to avoid being arrested by FRSC.
He said that the corps would continue to engage and sensitise motorists and other road users to the need to shun speeding and obey traffic rules to get to their destination safely.
