The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) says it has raised a Special Intervention Patrol (SIP) to enforce installment of Speed Limiting Devices on vehicles plying Nigerian roads.

The FRSC SIP will work along critical corridors from November 7 to November 13, this year to monitor compliance by motorists by targetting areas that the agency regard as flashpoints for “overloading infractions.”

The FRSC SIP will work along critical corridors from November 7 to November 13, this year to monitor compliance by motorists by targetting areas that the agency regard as flashpoints for “overloading infractions.”

Bisi Kazeem, Head, Media Relations and Strategy of the Corps, announced in a statement that Boboye Oyeyemi, Corps Marshal of FRSC, has directed that the Special Intervention Patrol be used to impress on field commands to sustain the enforcement drive on Speed Limiting Device Installation in Commercial Vehicles.

The special FRSC team will continue the sensitisation exercise of the 2016 Ember Months campaign and work to reduce road traffic crashes caused by overloading and over speeding, the agency says.

While all field Command operatives are to be involved in the Special Intervention Patrol, Commanding Officers are to ensure that special attention is given to all crash-prone areas within their jurisdictions, as well as to ensure that Officers, Marshals and Special Marshals are adequately mobilised in readiness to fully participate in the exercise, according to FRSC.

The selected corridors that are considered as flashpoints for overloading infractions are: Kaduna-Abuja-Lokoja-Okene route, Garaku-Akwanga-NasarawaEggon-Lafia-Makurdi route, Funtua-Tsafe-Gusau-Sokoto route, Lagos-Ogere-Ogunmakin-Ibadan route, Owo-Akure-Ilesha-Ife route, Jos-Toro-Bauchi-Alkaleri-Gombe route, Enugu 9th Mile-Awka-Nteje-IgboUkwu-Onitsha route, Asaba-Isele Uku-Agbor-Abudu-Benin route and Jebba-Olooru-Bode Saadu route.

The Corps Marshal appealed to staff across Nigeria to embrace modernisation programmes underway in the agency to facilitate steady growth and development of FRSC.

Oyeyemi said without staff capacity development effective implementation of the various policies could run into a hitch.

The Federal Road Safety Corps is the lead agency in Nigeria on road safety, administration and management created by the Federal Government in 1988.
