The Motor Vehicles Department’s move to make speed governors mandatory for all stage carriers in the state may put the drivers of Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) in trouble as they would struggle to reach destinations on time with the speed limit of 60 km per hour.
The KSRTC, which has a fleet of 6157 buses, is yet to fix speed governors in all its buses.
As the deadline set for heavy vehicles to get the speed governors installed came to an end on October 2, the MVD has started sealing the gadget to make it tamper-proof in private stage carriers.
Though the MVD has not yet started conducting checks for speed governors in state-owned buses, the Department is expected to commence it soon.
However, the installation and repairing of the speed governors in the KSRTC buses are progressing.
