FRSC says it will commence enforcement of speed limit on private vehicles from next year. It said the subtle enforcement is only for commercial and fleet operators for now.
Deputy Corps Marshal (DCM), Mrs Ojeme Ewhrudjakpor, disclosed this to newsmen today.
“For now we are not looking at private vehicle owners. We believe they can use their discretion in driving themselves and their family.”
“We have plans for signage on the roads. With this, individuals cannot drive more than 100 km per hour. Commercial buses cannot go more than 90 km per hour”
The subtle enforcement of the speed limit device commenced on Oct. 1 nationwide.
The FRSC boss said only 7,000 out of 57, 000 registered commercial vehicle operators have installed the device in their vehicles.
“When full enforcement commences next year, there will be no excuse. Because, all the transport unions have been carried along in the campaign of the device.”
Ewhrudjakpor also urged private owners to start getting the speed limit device installed in their vehicles and uploading them with the vendors.
