Reps Probe Speed Limit Device Policy

Lawmakers in Nigeria have promised to take an informed decision on the viability of the Automated Speed Limit Device Policy that is to commence on April 1.

The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on the Federal Road Safety Commission, Ahmed Yunusa, put forward the position during a public hearing in Abuja.

The Deputy Chief Whip of the House, who represented the Speaker of the House, declared the hearing open on Tuesday.

Some of the participants believed the device would help curb the high number of accidents on the nation’s highways.

Honourable Philip Shaibu, who had raised a motion on the matter in the chambers, was also at the event.

After hearing from other participants, the Committee said it would put a report together and submit to the House.

Its recommendations are expected to guide the House of Representatives, as it seeks to take a position on the Speed Limiter Policy.
