The Federal Road Safety Corps has said almost all registered fleet operators in the country have deployed speed limit devices in their vehicles.

In May, during activities marking the seventh United Nations Global Road Safety Week in Abuja, the FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, said over 40,000 people die annually as a result of road traffic crashes in the country.

On the level of compliance, Kazeem said that the compliance level is above board, especially the organized fleet operators. They have actually worked with our Commanding Officers nationwide to ensure a full transition to the speed limiter regime.

He said that as it stands today, almost all registered fleet operators have installed the device in their vehicles. The Corps is also making serious moves in enforcement, particularly other commercial vehicle operators that do not have a fleet. The essence is to ensure that collectively speed-related crashes are brought to an end.
