Chairman, Imo Transport Corporation (ITC), has called on Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to review its policy restricting usage of speed limiting device to commercial vehicles. Okafor Anyanwu made his position known while briefing journalists at ITC corporate headquarters in Owerri.
He said though the introduction of speed limiting device was a welcome development, but restricting the policy to only commercial vehicles was not good for the safety of commercial drivers and passengers.
“My position is that FRSC’s policy on speed limiter device should be implemented across board and both private and commercial vehicles should all install the device at the same time. For the FRSC to focus only on commercial vehicles, while private vehicles are allowed to drive at full speed will make commercial vehicles vulnerable”.
Okaforanyanwu said as a law-abiding company, “ITC has started complying because a lot of ITC vehicles are being installed with the speed limiting device by one of the accredited companies”.
