1. Driving a vehicle without a speed limiting device is a violation subject to N3,000 fine - FRSC
Out of the numerous ways people can lose their lives, road accidents take front-row seats. The dangers of over-speeding can never be overemphasized - they happen frequently and more than 40% of accidents that occur on Nigerian roads are traceable to over-speeding. Other reasons can be attributed to drivers failing to comply with the traffic rules.
Just as the name implies, speed limiting devices are designed for the sole purpose of regulating speed. Humans can get carried away – probably by thoughts or whatever catches their attention, the device basically prevents them from going too fast, thereby avoiding a possible road accident.
Actually, asides from trying to save your life, installing a speed limiter will save you N3,000. That’s the fine you get to pay when the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) find your vehicle without a speed limiting device.
