The Federal Road Safety Corps Sector Commander for Abuja, Ayuba Wobin Gora, said the command has commenced the arrest of motorists who remove the speed limiter devices fixed on their vehicles.
According to Ayuba, FRSC will always see to it that vehicles use the speed limiter device whenever they are on the road.
As reported by Naijauto, some motorists were said to have gone ahead to disconnect the device from their vehicles so it now becomes necessary that its use is enforced.
The sector commander explained that the reason for enforcing the use of the speed limiter was to reduce the number of road accidents on the highway. He added that the command had arrested some offenders who failed to install the speed limiting device.
