The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Kwara Sector Command, has inaugurated a special operation to curb speed limit violations by motorists in the state.
The Sector Commander, Mr. Jonathan Owoade, said this in a statement made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Ilorin on Wednesday.
He said the operation became necessary following the attitude of some motorists, especially truck drivers.
Owolabi said that the programme was part of the FRSC’s effort to ensure safety on the roads during the ‘Ember’ Months.
“The operation is part of activities heralding our Ember Months safety campaigns, and it is being carried out in collaboration with the Nigerian Air Force.
“The essence is to tackle the unsafe attitudes of some motorists in the state, especially those whose vehicles have no speed limit devices,” he said.
The sector commander also said that part of the operation was to monitor articulated vehicles that carry containers without twist locks.
He urged drivers in the state to obey traffic rules in the interest of their lives and that of other road users.
