The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has received the go-ahead from the President to commerce the installation of speed limiting device.

Yesterday, the Corps Marshal, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, revealed that this installment will begin from April, 2016.

"You will recall that we agreed to seek Presidential approval on the date of full enforcement of the installation of speed limiting device. On assumption of duty of President we sent a report and we briefed him on the level of progress on the enforcement of speed limiting device. I told Mr President that Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) requested for extension which I said it was beyond. In response to that we got a Presidential directive two weeks ago that the enforcement should commence on the 1st April, 2016."

Speaking at a Stakeholders meeting on Presidential Directive on the Enforcement of Speed Limiting Device in Abuja, he said that there was no room for any form of extension.

"Hence, this meeting is to convey presidential directive. This is the last extension, I can’t go back to Mr President again, you can go on your own but I will not follow you because I must obey presidential directive.

The use of speed limiting device is a preventive measure against road traffic crashes.
