FRSC records 75% compliance in Speed Limiter installation in Anambra


By Chimezie Anaso

Awka –  The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Anambra says it has recorded 75 per cent compliance in the installation of the Speed Limiting Device among fleet operators in the state.

Mr Sunday Ajayi, Sector Commander of the FRSC in the state, disclosed this in Awka on Tuesday while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Ajayi said awareness, sensitisation and enforcement activities in the command since the commencement of the policy had been successful.

He said in spite of the early resistance, the fleet operators had keyed into the programme having seen the immense benefit associated with it.

“The fleet operators now realise that the policy is in their best interest, it reduces cost and losses due to crash as well as boosts passenger’s confidence.

“Following the massive campaign we had here in terms of awareness, sensitisation, advocacy and enforcement, I can tell you now that we have achieved 75 per cent compliance level in the installation of the device among fleet operators,” he said.

Ajayi said no fewer than 85 persons had been referred to psychologists for emotional test for violating traffic laws since July.

The commander who said that post-crash response time had improved to 10 minutes assured that patrol would be intensified as the Yuletide approached.

He warned that high risk factors such as use of phone while driving, driving against traffic flow, speeding, overloading and non use of seat belts would not be condoned.

Ajayi also warned those learning to drive should stop it in this period as it could be suicidal, adding that those with incomplete papers and without driver’s license should also steer clear of the highway.

He appealed for cooperation with his men and warned against molesting them while in the line of duty. (NAN)
