Yusuf Abdullahi, the Sector Commander of the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) in Bauchi State has revealed that 113 traffic offenders were arrested across the state last week, adding that 52 of them failed to install speed limiting devices in their commercial vehicles.

He also explained that a lot of crashes in the state are down to the refusal to install the device.

According to him, “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.”

Abdullahi stated that the purpose of setting up the mobile court is to curtail speed because the number of crashes in the state is too high.

He noted that the command 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 explained that the offenders would pay fines stipulated for refusal to install the device.

The Sector Commander enjoined commercial drivers in the state to install the device because the FRSC would not tolerate refusals.
