The Federal Government of Nigeria says April 2016 will be the deadline for commercial vehicle owners to install speed limit devices in their vehicles.

According to the Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, there is no going back on the new date, as officials of the corps would impound vehicles of anyone who fails to comply with the directives.

“Speed accounts for greater part of the causes of crashes. We are on course with the stakeholders on this and there is no going back on Mr President’s directive of April 1.

“We have already created a portal and will impound as many vehicles that flaunt this.

“I have enough provision, nationwide, to impound and prosecute them,” he said.

Mr Oyeyemi also asked State Governments to set up traffic management agencies to help manage traffic in the states.

“We have a portal that we can use to verify whether the calibration has been done or installed and we have to sustain this.

“We need to bring down the level of crisis in the country.

“It is too worrisome to me and the only way is to compel all the commercial vehicles to install the speed limiting device or the alternative for the big trucks to calibrate them.

He said that the FRSC had started a consultation with stakeholders to arrive at better means of checking car crashes on Nigerian roads.

“We have worked in 2015 and we believe that for 2016, our focus is on improve fleet operations and sustainable stakeholder consultation, collaboration with states on improved road safety administration and improve enforcement and public education.

“We believe we are going to do well on the improvement of fleet operation and sustainable stakeholder consultation.

“We are going to encourage the states through the collaboration to set up the state management agencies. We already have about 12 states that have that.

“It’s one of the policies of the corps to encourage the states to set up the state traffic management agencies,” he explained.

According to him, the establishment of the traffic management agencies would enable the FRSC pull out from urban areas and focus more on the highways. (Channels TV)
