The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), in Plateau said on Wednesday that the Feb. 1 dateline for the enforcement of the speed limit regime remain sacrosanct.
The command in a statement signed by its Public Education Officer, Mr Andrew Bala, in Jos said the first face of the enforcement would kick off with commercial vehicles and fleet operators.
According to him, with the sustained public enlightenment and advisory enforcement of the speed limit device, FRSC finds it expedient to remind motorists of the Feb. 1 dateline for a full enforcement nationwide.
“We have carried out series of public enlightenment and advisory enforcement with several extended enforcement datelines which spanned for over four years.
“So, we want to use this medium to remind our friends in the transport sector to comply with these directives by installing the device in their vehicles before plying highways,” Bala said.
Bala further advised commercial drivers and fleet operators with more than three vehicles to key into the regime, as the Corps does not have plans of extending the dateline.
He also urged commercial motorists on the Plateau to cooperate and support FRSC in its quest to sanitise highways with a view of making it safer for all.
The officer assured that more awareness and enlightenment would be carried out so as to stem the tide of wanton killings occasioned by speed related crashes on highways.
