FRSC to Enforce Use of Speed Limit Device Oct 1

The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, has got the Presidency’s approval to enforce the Speed Limiting Device from October 1.

Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi yesterday told stakeholders in Abuja that the implementation and enforcement of the device witnessed four postponements from its initial launching date of June 1, 2015, before its final approval.

“The final directive from the Presidency is clear; the enforcement date for the implementation of the speed limiting device is on Oct. 1 and we have had series of stakeholders meeting.

“We already have the portal that we will use to monitor this, we don’t need to pursue any vehicle, we will just stop you like we verify licence.

“On the tablet we will check whether your vehicle has been installed with the device, if it has not, we will impound the vehicle and we make sure that you do the right thing.

“We are not talking about fines now ,it’s to save lives so we will impound the vehicle then the owner of the vehicle will be made to install the device before the journey continues ,’’ he said.

Oyeyemi said the corps would do this for the next three to six months to achieve enforcement and compliance so as to compel commercial vehicles to install the device.

He said speed related road deaths were avoidable if Nigerians resolved to prevent them, adding that controlling human habits on speeding had not been as effective as desired.
