The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has fixed April 1, 2016 as the deadline for the enforcement of speed limiting device on vehicles in Nigeria.
Speaking at a stakeholder’s summit on road transport business in Abuja, the Corps Marshall of FRSC, Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, said that President Muhammadu Buhari, graciously approved the new date after several appeal made by the Corps towards the extension of the enforcement date.
Oyeyemi said: “The extension date by the President provides you with ample opportunity to educate your members on the impending enforcement and need for them to get their vehicles installed with the devices before the expiring date to avoid arrest and prosecution when enforcement commences.”
The FRSC boss urged all commercial transporters across the country to ensure the devices are installed in their vehicles for their safety and the general safety of road users.
According to him, since the early part of the year when stakeholders started rubbing minds on issues of road safety, there has been noticeable cooperation.
