The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), has announced that violation of speed limiting devices, will start attracting fines from February 1, 2017.
This was revealed by the Corps Marshal, Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, on Sunday in Lagos.
He noted that the FRSC has set the date for full enforcement to commence on the device.
According to Oyeyemi, the commission had commenced advisory enforcement to road users since October 1, 2016 and about 131,000 road users have been enlightened on the device.
“The speed limiter is on course; by Feb. 1, 2017, the full enforcement and implementation will commence. We commenced advisory enforcement some months back,” the FRSC boss said.
“So far, about 131,000 people have been given citation and enlightenment.
“We are on course because speed limit device is the solution; we will lead them to ensure they are safe and also prevent them from crashes.”
According to him, 25 people were killed, while many others were injured during the attacks.
“So far, we have the record of 25 people who were killed during the attack, while many others injured have been taken to hospital for treatment,” Moriki said.
The bandits attacked the villages on Saturday night after carrying out similar attacks in some communities at neighboring Shinkafi Local Government Area, the previous day.
The lawmaker lauded the security agencies over timely measures taken to restore peace and stability, but urged them to do more.
