FRSC set to enforce speed limit devices in vehicles

The Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC) has again emphasised that over speeding, reckless driving and overloading are among the causes of road accidents in the country.

The Corps says it is poised to ensure the reduction of road crashes by 15% and fatalities from road crashes reduced by 20%.

This is according to the Zonal Commander FRSC Zone 12, ACM Umar Ibrahim who made the revelation while speaking with journalists in Bauchi.

The zonal commander stated that the Corps, over the years, noticed that the offence of overloading is rampant in the North, especially on market days.

According to him, on such market days transporters are seen jam-packing their vehicles with people, goods and animals, stressing that, “When such vehicles are involved in a crash, the fatalities are usually high.”

FRSC is now ready to commence enforcement of speed limit devices in vehicles
