The Lagos State Sector Commander of the Federal Roads Safety Corps (FRSC), Olusegun Ogungbemide, has impounded 35 commercial vehicles, for lacking speed limit devices.
Ogungbemide disclosed this after the corps operatives sensitised motorists plying the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on the need to install “speed governors’’ in their vehicles.
He said the operation was in line with the directive of the Corps Marshal, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, who had noticed an increase in the number of fatalities during the festive period.
“We are not going to release those vehicles even after the payment of fines by their owners until they install speed limit devices in them,’’ he said.
Ogungbemide urged motorists to be more careful on the road, obey all traffic rules, and comply with Covid-19 protocols.
He cautioned against making the transportation sector an agent in the spread of Covid-19.
The Lagos State Coordinator, Special Marshals, Mr. Sola Olojede, said a total of 100 of his colleagues participated in the enforcement of the speed limit.
He pleaded with motorists, not to over-speed and to observe all traffic rules.Follow us on social media
