The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has stated that it will start to clamp down on driver’s license violators and also vehicles without speed limiting devices.
Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, issued the order in reaction to the rising cases of speed-related road crashes and fatalities.
This is contained in a statement issued to newsmen on Sunday by the Corps Public Education Officer, Assistant Corps Marshal Bisi Kazeem.
He said, “Oyeyemi has directed Commanding Officers across the country to intensify special operations targeted at the offenders. This is with the ongoing operation sanity aimed at restoring sanity to the nation’s highways.
“The Corps Marshal expressed dismay over continuing incidents of fatal crashes caused by speed violation with most of the drivers failing to install speed limiting devices in their vehicles despite repeated warnings.
“This, he said, is unacceptable to the FRSC Management and decision has been taken to clampdown on such recalcitrant violators who must be subjected to the fullest sanctions provided by law to serve as deterrence for others.”
