FRSC To Enforce Speed Limit On Lagos-Ibadan Expressway

As part of the efforts to check the rate of accidents in the country, the Federal Road Safety Commission said on Wednesday that it had concluded plans to enforce 100-kilometre per hour speed limit on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

FRSC Ogere Unit Commander, Mr. Godwin Samgbaza, who disclosed this in an interview during a motorised patrol exercise on the expressway, stated that the corps was ready to ensure that motorists no longer exceeded the speed limit on the expressway.

Samgbaza added that the unit would collaborate with other commands along the expressway to ensure its strict observance.

He said Mowe, Sagamu and Ogere Unit Commands would employ the use of six patrol vehicles to lead motorists to observe the speed limit along the corridor.

The Ogere unit commander further noted that the introduction of the speed patrol vans would enable FRSC operatives to carry out prompt emergency rescue service and ensure the availability of patrol men on the expressway.

“The purpose of the exercise as envisioned by the zonal command is to ensure that will actualise 20 per cent reduction in crashes and 30 per cent reduction in crash-related fatalities.

“It is also in line with Corps external strategic corporate goals, the year 2010 United Nations decade of action and 2015 ACCRA declaration of Road Safety,” he said.

He advised motorists plying the expressway to always exercise patience and caution as well as observe all rules and regulations while driving on the highway.
