FRSC commences mobile speed control on Lagos-Ibadan highway

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has begun ‘mobile speed control operation’ to stem the incessant road crashes along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

The FRSC spokesperson in Ogun State, Florence Okpe, said the State Sector Command of the corps is carrying out the operation together with the national headquarters.

Okpe said that recent road traffic crash statistics revealed that speed has been the major causative factor which results in death and severe injuries along the corridor.

As an organization saddled with the responsibility of ensuring the safety of lives on the road, Okpe noted that the FRSC deemed it necessary “to intensify the enforcement of speed limiter to some categories of vehicles” in order to control speed.

Okpe appealed to motorists using the highway to comply with the stipulated speeds of 100km for cars; 90km for taxis and buses, 60km for tankers and trailers; and 45 Km for towing vehicles.

She, however, urged motorists to desist from speeding, while charging them to always observe the average 50km speed at work zones and built-up areas.
