Speed Limiting Device: FRSC impounds 16 vehicles in Onitsha

Speed Limiting Device: FRSC impounds 16 vehicles in Onitsha

The Onitsha Unit of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Wednesday impound­ed 16 commercial vehicles for failing to install speed limiting devices.
The Unit Commander, Mr Paulinus Akpotobo in an interview said that the exercise marked the com­mencement of total en­forcement on speed limit­ing device compliance.
“FRSC nationwide has commenced the enforce­ment on the compliance of speed limiting device on commercial vehicles and the directive was totally adhered to in Onitsha.
“The essence is not to pursue anyone but for them to key into the Fed­eral Government’s proj­ect of reducing fatality on highways,” Akpotobo ex­plained.
However, the unit com­mander said that sensitisa­tion exercises previously embarked upon by the Corps proved that major­ity of fleet operators on the corridors of the com­mercial city installed the device.
According to him, we have so far impounded 16 vehicles and they have been booked with a fine of N3,000 each and directed to have the speed limiting device installed through the accredited vendors.
He said that the enforce­ment will be a continuous exercise until the organisa­tion records total compli­ance.
