He claims that the refusal to install the device is to blame for a large number of wrecks in the state.

“Since the start of Operation Zero on December 17, we’ve arrested 113 traffic offenders, and our mobile court has prosecuted those who didn’t install the device in particular.”

“The goal of establishing the mobile court is to reduce speed because the frequency of crashes in our state is far too great.”

“We focused on the installation of speed restriction devices to reduce crashes, which is why the number of arrests for failure to install the device is high,” he explained.

According to Abdullahi, anyone who refuse to install the gadget will be fined.

He urged commercial drivers in the state to install the device because the FRSC would not tolerate refusals.

“They should all install speed limiting device so that we can curtail crashes on the road,’’ he admonished.
