FRSC To Begin Enforcement Of Speed Limit In September


The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, will begin the first stage of the enforcement of the use of speed limit device as from September 1.

It will carry out the implementation with officials of the Standard Organization of Nigeria, SON.

The corps marshal of the agency, Boboye Oyeyemi, said there is an urgent need for the use of the devices by Nigerian drivers as over 50 per cent of major road crashes is attributed to speed.

He said the prerogative for safety on the Nigerian road lies with the corps, thus it would do all it can to carry out its functions.



    On his part the Director-General, SON, Joseph Odumodu, tasked the corps to ensure that the high rate of used and expired tyres in circulation is curbed as this is one of the major causes of accidents.

    He said SON is also doing a lot to ensure that used and low quality tyres are kept off the streets.

    “Clearly we can save some lives by removing the tyres that are not supposed to stay on the road,” Odumodu said.

    Both organizations equally promised to work closely with the National Automotive Council to ensure high standards that would ensure safety on Nigerian roads.
