Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, says it will commence the arrest of commercial vehicle drivers who fail to install speed limit devices in their vehicles from April 1.
The Anambra State Sector Commander of the FRSC, Mr Sunday Ajayi, gave the warning in Onitsha yesterday during a sensitisation exercise on the federal government’s directive on the installation of speed limit devices.
Ajayi, who was accompanied by the Unit Commander of FRSC in Onitsha, Mr Anthony Metta, said over-speeding accounted for the greater number of road crashes in the country.
“What we are doing now is a sensitisation enforcement to let people realise that the time is near for fleet operators to begin to install speed limiters in their vehicles.
“It is important because over-speeding or inappropriate speed has killed so many people on the high way.
“The only solution which has been approved by the federal government is the installation of speed limiters,” Ajayi said.
The sector commander explained that the initial focus of the directive was on commercial vehicles because they carry many people and are usually involved in traffic crash.
He advised drivers and fleet owners to explore the FRSC website or check the nearest FRSC offices to access the list of vendors to patronise.
Ajayi assured that the FRSC was poised to enforce traffic laws to reduce to barest minimum traffic accidents on the high ways.
