FRSC has impounded over 5,000 vehicles for not installing speed limiters.
According to Punch, the cars were confiscated by the Federal Road Safety Commission due to the owners' refusal to install speed limiters.
This information was disclosed by the Ogun State Sector Commander, FRSC, Mr. Clement Oladele at an event marking the 10th Anniversary of the Temidayo Ogan Child Safety and Support (TOCSS) Foundation.
Speaking at the event, he said, “From February 1, the Federal Government ordered that if you don’t have the speed limiter, it has become an offence. Even though it is an offence for all vehicles, either private or commercial, we decided to start with commercial vehicles.
“We arrest an average of 100 vehicles per day. While we allow some of them to pay the fine of N3,000, we insist that others are charged to court. Other time, we seize your vehicle and insist that you fix the speed limiter.”
Oladele also noted that there are fewer accidents in the country due to the efforts of the FRSC officials.
Temidayo Ogan, the Executive Director of TOCSS Foundation, also spoke on road safety.
According to her, she was motivated to start the foundation after escaping an accident, in which she was saved by her seat belt.
After revealing that her child was also saved by her seat belt in the same accidents, she urged parents in particular to always ensure that their children use their seat belts while driving.
Ogan also advised everyone to obey traffic rules.
Her foundation also premiered a new movie, entitled ‘Amigas’, that is about road safety.
