The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has kicked off, as announced, the inspection of vehicles to ensure the implementation of speed-limit mechanisms. The devices will limit motorists from going over a 100KM per hour speed, a move that will see less frequency of fatal accidents on Nigerian roads, the Corps said.
FRSC deputy commander, Yusuf Aliyu Haruna, in a statement released on Saturday 1 October 2016,
“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.”
