School vehicles asked to install speed governors

HYDERABAD: Transport Commissioner J. Raymond Peter has directed all educational institutions to install Speed Governors in all their vehicles and get them sealed by the department’s motor vehicle inspectors before January 26.

He said in a press release on Tuesday that the department had decided to implement last year’s G.O. and referred to the orders issued by the High Court directing the Government to implement it.

According to the release, notices were being issued by the department to all educational institutions’ vehicles in all districts to install speed governors.

No vehicle would be permitted to ply without speed governor after January 26. The speed limit would be fixed at 40 km per hour and sealed by the Transport authorities.

No fitness certificate would be issued or renewed after January 26 for the vehicles unless a speed governor of the approved type was installed and sealed, the press release stated.
