The Federal Road Safety Corps, Bauchi State sector, has impounded a total of 546 vehicles who have no speed limit device.
The Sector Commander, Abdulrazak Najume, said in an interview with PUNCH in his office, that there is no going back on the enforcement since the law was still in place.
He stated that most of the motorists are refusing to install the device, “but what we are doing is that we are arresting them and making them pay the fine of N3, 000. We will continue to arrest them.”
Najume who wondered why the motorists have refused to install the device despite the fine said, “You’ll find out that a driver will be arrested more than 10 times on this issue of the speed limit device.
“He is the one losing instead of him to go and install it for either N30, 000 or N40, 000 and use it forever or till his vehicle is outdated.”
The Sector Commander stated that research has shown that speeding is the major cause of accidents on the roads.
He said if speed was controlled, accidents would reduce drastically.
