The Federal Road Safety Commission, FRSC, has said it will begin with the full implementation of speed limit devices in April.
Ime Offiong, the Unit Commander of FRSC in Itori, Ogun State, in a statement to the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, explained that the commission had embarked on advisory and cautioning of commercial vehicles which do not attract any fees or bookings. She however said that the cautioning of vehicles will end on March 31.
“We implored commercial vehicles and private vehicles to install the devices to ensure reduction of crashes on our roads,” Offiong said.
It is no news that the FRSC has always cautioned Nigerian drivers on the need to obey traffic rules, blaming most of the accidents on the roads on breaking of traffic laws. The unit commander however stressed this point as she spoke to the news men, lamenting that one of the major challenges confronting the FRSC was disobeying of traffic rules by motorists. She further advised transport owners, drivers and stakeholders to co-operate with the commission to achieve the implementation of the speed limit devices.
“As the day of the full implementation is drawing nearer, we enjoin people to comply with the full implementation of the speed limit devices,” she said.
