The speed limiter, also called a governor, governs a set speed limit for a particular vehicle. For instance, according to the FRSC policy, different highways have different speed limits for different vehicles. For a personal car, the common one is 100km per hour. For a truck, it is 65km per hour. For a bus carrying passengers, it is 90km on the highway. Once the speed limiter has been fitted on a vehicle, it ensures that the driver does not go beyond the set speed limit. No matter how the driver accelerates, the vehicle will not be able to go beyond the set speed. Compliance is key in running a successful haulage business! Get your Speed Limiter fitted TODAY. Do not wait till the very last minute!

Have a safe and fruitful trucking week…
