The Federal Road Safety Corps has issued about 2,800 commercial vehicles tickets of excellent on taking off of the enforcement of speed limiting devices nationwide.
In a statement signed by Bisi Kazeem, Head Media Relations and Strategy of the Corps, Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi says the enforcement was not to inflict pain on motorists and road users but for commercial vehicle owners to voluntarily imbibe the culture of its usage and key into it.
He 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 noted that in the coming days, the leadership of the organized transport unions such as NURTW, NUPENG PTD, NARTO, RTEAN LUBOAN should be involved in the advisory enforcement by joining FRSC top officers to patrol.
He, therefore, advised commercial vehicle operators to continually patronize the device as there was no going back on its full and real enforcement come January 2017.
