The National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, Bayelsa State chapter has called on the Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, to extend the October 1 deadline for the implementation of the speed limiting device.
State Chairman of the transport union, ThankGod Eribo, made the appeal in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State capital, on Wednesday.
He, however, agreed the initiative was a laudable one which the union must comply with.
The NURTW boss said, “The initiative is as important as the engine of a vehicle, especially to our members, who are the major road users; and this is what we have been expecting from the FRSC.
“We will comply with the initiative, since it is a safety precaution to reduce crashes.”
Eribo noted that the enforcement date was too near and pleaded with the FRSC to extend the date and also make the price of the device affordable.
