The Federal Road Safety Corps has said it is ready to commence with the enforcement of the installation of speed limiting device by commercial and haulage vehicles operators in Nigeria from April 1.

This is expected to put a stop to road recklessness especially by commercial vehicle drivers.

On this note, the Sector Commander of the FRSC, Federal Capital Territory, Mr. Sunday Oghenekaro, has urged commercial motorists to install the device in their vehicles before April 1 when the agency would begin to arrest and prosecute defaulters.
