As the implementation of the speed limiting device took off nationwide on Saturday, the Federal Road Safety Commision Corps Marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi has expressed satisfaction with the advisory enforcement as 2,800 commercial vehicles were issued tickets on take off.
In a statement issued on Sunday by Bisi Kazeem , Head Media Relations and Strategy, FRSC, Oyeyemi reiterated that the enforcement was not to inflict pain on motorists and road users but for commercial vehicle owners to voluntarily imbibe the culture of its usage and key into it.
According to Oyeyemi, the advisory enforcement is a sort of subtle force that entails stopping commercial vehicles, verifying electronically whether the devise is fixed and giving citation to offenders for corrective purposes.
The exercise, Oyeyemi said, is also known as free safety checks.
“In the coming days, the leadership of the organized transport unions such as NURTW, NUPENG PTD, NARTO, RTEAN LUBOAN shall be involved in the advisory enforcement by joining FRSC top officers to patrol”, he said.
He therefore advised commercial vehicle operators to continually patronize the devise as there is no going back on its full and real enforcement come January 2017.
