How Speed limiters damage vehicles – Drivers

Haulage and logistics transporters under the aegis of Allied Truck Transporters Association of Nigeria (ATTAN), have said that speed limiters enforced by the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) are damaging their vehicles.

The ATTAN’s members made this claim at a press conference they organised in Lagos where they said the use of the device had damaged at least about six of their vehicles.

The drivers also raised objection to the proposed use of consultants and commission agents in collecting transport revenue in Lagos State.

While explaining how the speed limiters damaged their trucks, ATTAN National Chairman, Evangelist Johnson Oyedemi, said that Nigerian roads are hilly and trucks carrying heavy loads require speed on hills, but these substandard speed limiters would only impede fast movement uphill, thereby causing overheating and engine knocking.
