The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has made good its threat to begin that the enforcement of the installation of the speed limited device on commercial vehicles nationwide with effect from October 1, 2016.

As at yesterday, the commission had issued about 2,800 commercial vehicles tickets of fine, FRSC said in a statement signed by Head Media Relations and Strategy, Bisi Kazeem.

The statement however quoted Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, as saying that the enforcement would have a human face. He explained that the purpose is not to inflict pain on motorists and road users but for commercial vehicle owners to voluntarily imbibe the culture of its usage the speed limiter and key into it.

The statement said the advisory enforcement is a sort of subtle force that entails stopping commercial vehicles, verifying electronically whether the device was fixed and giving citation to offenders for corrective purposes.

Kazeem disclosed that in the coming days, the leadership of the organised transport unions such as NURTW, NUPENG PTD, NARTO, RTEAN, LUBOAN would be involved in the advisory enforcement by joining FRSC top officers to patrol.

He, therefore, advised commercial vehicle operators to continually patronise the devise as there was no going back on its full and real enforcement come January 2017.
