Speed Limiter - FRSC Begins Advisory Enforcement

The Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi has expressed satisfaction with the advisory enforcement of speed limiter nationwide, even as no fewer than 2,800 commercial vehicles were issued tickets only hours after enforcement of the compulsory use of the device commenced

Defaulting vehicle owners who are issued the tickets are advised to take advantage of the period of grace to install the speed limiting devices.

Explaining that the enforcement was not meant to inflict pain on motorists and road users, Oyeyemi stated that rather it was intended to make commercial vehicle owners voluntarily imbibe the culture of using the speed limiting device and key into the new policy.

Head Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, Bisi Kazeem , explained further that the advisory enforcement is a sort of subtle force that entails stopping commercial vehicles, verifying electronically whether the devise is fixed and giving citation to offenders for corrective purposes. The exercise is also known as free safety checks.

In the coming days, the leadership of the organized transport unions such as NURTW, NUPENG PTD, NARTO, RTEAN LUBOAN shall be involved in the advisory enforcement by joining FRSC top officers to patrol he said.

He, therefore, advised commercial vehicle operators to continually patronize the devise as there is no going back on its full and real enforcement come January 2017.
