The Lagos State Government has warned motorists against violating the state’s laws by driving against traffic.
Commissioner for Transportation, Dr Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement issued on behalf of the state, decried the high rate of accidents on Lagos roads.
He said, “We will not condone driving against traffic from either public or private motorists. This is, therefore, to sound a note of warning to violators as drastic actions will be taken against anyone caught.”
Oladeinde said a plan was underway for a joint enforcement exercise involving the state’s traffic apparatus and the police to ensure a robust and firm enforcement framework and appealed to the citizenry to avoid being victims.
“We will start making arrests within the ambit of the law; do not be a victim. We trust that you will cooperate with the government,” he said.
