In the recent week, the FRSC apprehended 113 traffic offenders in Bauchi State.
According to Yusuf Abdullahi, the state’s Sector Commander, 52 of the offenders failed to install Speed Limiting Devices in their commercial vehicles, according to the News Agency of Nigeria in Bauchi on Thursday.
He claims that the refusal to install the device is to blame for a large number of wrecks in the state.
“Since the beginning of Operation Zero which began on Dec. 17, we have arrested 113 traffic offenders and our mobile court has prosecuted particularly those who did not install the device.
“The purpose of setting up the mobile court is to curtail speed because the number of crashes we have in the state is too high.
“We focused on the installation of speed limiting devices to curtail crashes and that is why the arrest for non-installation of the device is high,’’ he said.
According to Abdullahi, anyone who refuse to install the gadget will be fined.
He advised commercial drivers in the state to install the device, stating that the FRSC would not accept refusals.
“They should all install speed limiting device so that we can curtail crashes on the road,’’ he admonished.
