FRSC Delegates 300 Factory Fitted Hummer Buses With Speed Limiter

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) campaign for the use of speed limiting device in vehicles operating in the country got a hike as the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Boboye Oyeyemi commissioned 300 factory fitted Hummer Buses with the devices into the fleet of the Peace Mass Transport (PMT) Limited.

Oyeyemi reaffirmed the commitment of the FRSC to pursuit of road safety policies and programmes, saying the corps will continue to partner and support transport companies that show commitment to issues of road safety.

According to a statement signed by the head, media and strategy of the FRSC, Bisi Kazeem, the Corps Marshal said PMT has always demonstrated its commitment to issues of road safety as evidenced by its road safety policies including regular training and retraining of its drivers, pioneering the use of speed limiters in the country and maintenance culture as well as zero tolerance for overloading.

He noted that PMT is a living example of the benefits of speed limiters in vehicles, as the company drastically reduced the rate of crashes involving its fleet of vehicles to 50 per cent upon introducing the devices, while the fuel economy that go with the measure remains a source of motivation that would sustain the policy.

He, however, stressed that as a nation that relies on road transport for almost 90 per cent of its movements, the need for safety measures in Nigeria to make movements of people and goods safe and convenient cannot be over-emphasised.
