The Federal Road Safety Corps, Osun State, on Monday, said it commenced enforcement of the use of speed limiter, especially by commercial vehicles.

The command also said seven commercial vehicles were impounded for non-compliance with the use of the device in the state.

The Sector Commander, Paul Okpe, in a statement in Osogbo, stated that the enforcement was to reduce road crashes.

Okpe, who called on motorists to approach accredited vendors and install the device in their vehicles, added that enforcement would continue.

He said, “The Osun Sector Command will go tough on commercial vehicles without the speed limiting device.

“We impounded seven vehicles for violation of the speed limiting device. The total number of vehicles checked between December 29, 2021, and January 1, 2022, is 33.

“Seven vehicles out of those ones checked have installed the device. We are embarking on serious enforcement of the speed limiting device to reduce crashes.”
