In the drive to attaining its yearly goal of trending down Road Traffic Crashes and reducing fatality rate by 15%, the Federal Road Safety Corps’ Speed Limiting Device initiative that has raised concerns in the polity among different interest groups now have gained grounds with the today's  ruling by Justice Chukwu of the Federal High Court, Abuja,  in a case instituted against the Corps by Registered Trustees of International Human Rights and Anti Corruption Society.

According to  Bisi Kazeem, Head Media Relations and Strategy, “the case against FRSC at the Federal High Court Abuja by Registered Trustees of International Human Rights & Anti Corruption Society in Suit No FHC/Abj/CS/805/15  challenging the powers of FRSC on the speed limiter was today dismissed by the Federal High Court, Abuja  presided over by Justice Chukwu who described the positions of the opponents to the Speed  Limiting Device as lacking in merit”.

The Spokesman of the Corps further stressed that the Court held that FRSC has acted in line with its statutory powers by introducing , imposing and implementing the use of the speed limiting device in Nigeria.
