Lagos State Government To Continue Enforcement Of Traffic Laws by Lanrelagboi: 6:09am On Nov 19
CLAMPDOWN ON TRAFFIC LAW VIOLATORS
The Lagos State Government will continue to enforce its traffic laws to maintain sanity on roads and save lives.

The State Environment and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit (Taskforce) will keep enhancing the enforcement of the Lagos Traffic Law 2018 with which it has been checking the excesses of commercial motorcyclists and others who drive against oncoming traffic and ply restricted routes. The action is to halt the resurgence of impunity and violation of traffic regulations.

Amid the enforcement, which began on Tuesday, commercial motorcyclists have taken laws into their hands and attacked the Task Force team, injuring officers carrying out their lawful duties. The perpetrators of this violence will be identified and made to face the law.

However, the officers were undeterred by the criminal activities of the motorcyclists; 131 motorcycles were seized; 15 riders arrested and prosecuted; and 150 vehicles impounded in various areas of the State.

The Task Force subsequently arraigned and prosecuted 35 drivers of impounded vehicles, who had to forfeit their cars to the State for driving against oncoming traffic; 62 drivers who plied the BRT Corridor were fined N70,000 each; and 28 tricycle owners were also arraigned in court.

The Task Force was again attacked in Ikeja, on Wednesday. It retreated to avoid an escalation of the crisis. The team, however, mobilised more personnel to quell the riots started by the riders.

Traffic enforcement agencies will continue to assert their authority. They have been directed to arraign and prosecute all violators to ensure that penalties are apportioned in consonance with the law.

For the avoidance of doubt, commercial motorcycles and tricycles remain restricted from operating in six Local Governments and nine Local Council Development Areas - Apapa LG; Lagos Mainland LG; Surulere LG; Ikeja LG; Eti-Osa LG; Lagos Island LG; Onigbongbo LCDA; Ojodu LCDA; Ikoyi-Obalende LCDA; Iru-Victoria Island LCDA; Lagos Island East LCDA; Apapa Iganmu LCDA; Yaba LCDA; Itire-Ikate LCDA; and Coker-Aguda LCDA.

The Lagos State Government will continue to dialogue with stakeholders in the transportation sector - NURTW, RTEAN, ANACOWA, TOOAN, TODAL and MOALS - to restore sanity on Lagos roads and halt the disregard for the Lagos Traffic Law (2018).

Enforcement of Traffic laws ??

When roads are blocked and people spend hours everyday in traffic.

Oga Gov, providing alternative routes and easing stress off people should be your priority and not empowering traffic officers to fleece off residents of the state

I am happy People now see that they are powerful and if things are not done properly, there shall be resistance.

Instead of them to resolve traffic bottle necks they are pursuing the movement of people.

They want people to be like cows in trailers!

How I wish this Govt official, especially the one that released this epistle comes to enforce traffic laws himself.

It is the police they will still use for their draconic enforcement.

My question is, is this the right time to do all this, especially when in a state where there is absolutely no road for motorists to drive through?

IKORODU to Maryland is a no go area (mumu construction all the way from mile 12 to Ojota).

Who is inspecting the construction timeline?

ENFORCE TRAFFIC LAWS ON BAD ROADS WITH CORRUPT OFFICERS AND FRUSTRATED MOTORISTS? I know one thing!
When it all goes down every corrupt government officials past and present won't be saved. There is no accountability but i trust people will reveal things and that is enough.
