Solution To Traffic In Lagos - Alibaba Shares 'perfect' Idea by goldcoinhub: 9:36am On Jun 04, 2019
The solution to traffic in Lagos State is just one issue that has been eluding consecutive governments in the state, but it looks like this might be coming to an end as Comedian Alibaba has just come up with his own idea on how the traffic jinx can be broken.

After he reportedly spent 3 hour in traffic yesterday, Alibaba believes Lagos residents are the cause of the problems and then proffers a solution.

Read below:

Spent 3 hours today... and came to the conclusion again, that we are the cause of our problems. After the #tdwcafrica2019 at Landmark, I was on the road linking Ligali, going back to my office and noticed there was a gridlock.

My driver said it will soon clear. When soon turned to 35 minutes, I came down and walked through the vehicles to see the cause of the HOLD UP was.

4 lanes coming from Ligali towards Landmark and 5 lanes filtering onto the end of Ligali. Plus traffic from 3 streets pouring into the same road. The little spaces inbetween cars were all taken over by okada riders. While the spaces wider than those okadas could squeeze through had been pegged close by keke Napep.

Managed to merge 4 lanes to 2 and 3 lanes in the opposite direction, to form 1 lane, just to decongest the gridlock. Worked. And after 2 hours, decorum had resumed.
Hmmm.

A thought hit me. If @jidesanwoolu wants to make extra N200b to develop Lagos, he should just invest in CCTVs at major and busy junctions. With STOP signs to boot. Borrow money fix the roads and drainages. Then set up a system that will get drivers and vehicles to be linked together. When you are caught on tape, beating the traffic lights or breaking traffic laws, you will just get the alert that the payment has been deducted from your account.

To make this work, each car will have its registration number linked to the BVN of the owner. No need to set up any other means of collecting the money. And if you sell the car, you must go to the licensing office to change the BVN. Failure to do that means whoever drives the car and commits an offence, will not be debited. The original owner pays.

If it's a military vehicle, the debit comes from the military account. Same with corporate bodies. Individuals too. You can imagine Oga is sitting at home, in Ikoyi, and he gets a debit alert for traffic infractions in Lekki PHASE 1, N45,000. How? He will call the driver or whoever is with the car. Kilode? "I beat red lights sir". Just sack yourself.

And it doesn't matter whether you have money in the account. The account will be on debit. Any day money comes in it will be deducted with interest.
No traffic

Alibaba himself is a Special Marshall of the Federal Road Safety Corps and didn't have a choice than to alight from his car and control traffic. He was captured on video while on service.

That would work until, like every other thing our goverment initiates,it is misused.

It will be seen as a revenue collection drive and the number of people who will lining up for review of CCTV for wrong infractions will be mind boggling.

That is if the CCTV lasts beyond 2 months. Either for lack of maintenance or by stealing.

Nevertheless, good idea, coz something has to be done to tame the madness we exhibit on the street, as it seems the educated people in cars are more mentally unstable than the illiterates on the streets that they always criticize.

Re: Solution To Traffic In Lagos - Alibaba Shares 'perfect' Idea by Nobody: 12:22pm On Jun 04, 2019
The only problem to dis great idea is the corruption of our minds as a nation.

Corrupt officials will jeopardise the ideas
Maintenance culture will jeopardise the cameras
Na my person dey there will jeopardise the registration process
And some little few will jeopardize the earnings.

The problem is the people not the system

We all need to go back to the days of 'even' and 'odd' number plates driving on a particular day.

But wait ooo, this his suggestion might work. Since you can't just open another account with banks

I think the major cause of traffic in Lagos is multiple lane, some road are two lanes lagosians will turn it to three or four at the end causing serious traffic at a junction

I've got similar idea, but can it be implemented?
If it us implemented, will the people protect the camera and not vandalize it?

We need total reorientation...starting from nursery school.
