FRSC begins enforcement of speed limit device

As the Federal Road Safety Corps begins the enforcement of the speed limit device installation nationwide today (Saturday), motorists plying the Sokoto highways, especially commercial drivers, have been warned to comply with the installation of the device in their vehicles.


Failure to comply, according to the Deputy Corps Commander, Yusuf Aliyu Haruna, would lead to the defaulting vehicles being impounded, until the device is installed.

DCC Haruna, who is presently the acting Sector Commander of Sokoto Command, FRSC, told Saturday PUNCH that the command under his watch, had invested heavily in sensitisation and advocacy, especially with transport unions and the public at large.

“We partner with the local media to achieve state-wide coverage in our advocacy programme and went a step higher in using the Niger Republic Radio, to sensitise motorists in the Ilella border area, so that drivers from neighbouring Niger Republic will not ignorantly run foul of our rules.

“Through speeding, a lot of road crashes have been recorded, and this necessitated the adoption of this global practice to regulate the speed of vehicles,” he said.

Buttressing the benefits of the device, the FRSC boss explained that in case of a head-on collision involving vehicles on less than 100km per hour, the impact would affect the engine at most as loss of life is mostly recorded in accidents involving vehicles on speed of more than 100km per hour.

    Its a very good development, but I think the Corp Marsha has some questions to answer;
    Is this device affordable for Nigerians at this retrogresive economic moment?

    What is the cost implications?

    Where is the point of purchase of this speed limit device?

    Having seen many advocacy awareness about this said limit device but I have not for once seen the above questions answered.

    Its a good product from good thinking, but the FRSC commission should play fair with the masses amidst the present economic recession.

    Happy Independence Day!
    God bless Nigeria.
