Motorists as well as residents of some communities have been reacting to the ‘no speed breakers’ directive by the Federal Government.
This is sequel to the directive by Nigeria’s Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, that all speed breakers on federal highways be removed.
Those agitating for the speed breakers to remain have insisted that they are necessary, in order to control the speed of motorists on the highways.
They believe that several lives have been lost to road accidents as a result of over-speeding by motorists, especially as some motorists indulge in drunk driving.
Some citizens are, however, in support of the government’s order for the removal of the speed breakers.
Motorists especially have complained that the speed breakers damage their vehicles, insisting that they are of no advantage on the highways.
