These Are Duties And Functions Of LASTMA, VIO And FRSC Officers - AutoReportNG by AutoReportNG: 3:51pm On Feb 11
Many a time Nigerian road users fall victim of extortion of the law enforcement. Imagine a LASTMA official checking your car documents, this is not absurd but a slap on his employers. LASTMA officials are not meant to check neither are they to ask for car particulars. Ignorance is not an excuse in the court of law so its expedient one knows the duties of each law enforcement and try to decipher their modus operandi and what their line of duties.

There are 4 authorized law agencies which are mandated by law to regulate traffic, cars, and roads in Nigeria. While some are restricted to state roads, the rest are everywhere. For those in Lagos, the fear of LASTMA, VIO, FRSC and Police call for wisdom but most times due to the way we fear these folks, they act mostly on illegalities. For example, a video was trending on Twitter over the weekend between a LASTMA official and a Taxify driver, according to reports, the LASTMA officer asks for the driver's documents and other items. What most drivers don't know that this is not their duty, this is the duty reserved for FRSC and Police alone and not the LASTMA or VIO.

AutoReportNG decided its times to get our readers to enlighten on the duties of LASTMA, VIO, FRSC and Police on Nigerian highways.

Please ask APC and Buhari where is Leah Sharibu?
I could remember when his son had accidents and the agony Aisha and former Buhari had.
