. …..sets to meet market leaders on the State Environmental Laws.

Following the regular upbeat in social activities during Yuletide season with a corresponding increased in vehicular traffic and in addition to the on-going construction works at various parts of the State, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has assured motoring public of adequate traffic management and control during the upcoming Christmas/New Year celebrations

In a press statement issued by the Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of (LASTMA), Mr. Adebayo Taofiq quoted the Acting General Manager of LASTMA Mr. Bakare Oki Olalekan to have gave this assertion while strategizing over the weekend with the newly restructured management team, Commanders and Zonal Heads at Oshodi.

Bakare Oki said, “All motorists are urged to maintain speed limits as they embark on their journeys into, within and outside Lagos as major entry/exit roads in Lagos like, Lagos – Ibadan, Lagos-Abeokuta, Lagos – Badagry, Lekki -Epe Expressways and Lagos – Ikorodu – Sagamu Highway would be adequately covered by Lastma personnel for smooth and seamless traffic flow”.

The LASTMA boss further stressed that as a responsive way of strategizing to ensure free traffic flow around markets, the agency is collaborating with relevant government agencies such as ‘Kick Against Indiscipline’ (K.A.I) to ensure that activities of illegal traders does not affect travel time before, during and after the celebration.

LASTMA officers’ presence would equally be felt at all the major roads intersections along with regular/ consistent patrols, especially along notorious traffic flashpoints.

According to Ag. General Manager “every motorists must obey traffic regulations, drive within the prescribed speed limit, must avoid reckless driving and also to carry out regular maintenance works on their vehicle before putting them on the road in order to avoid road accidents”

“Do not drink and drive and don’t constitute yourself and other road users to danger on the road, as the law will not be spared in dealing with errant road users who want to infringe on other people’s right to use the roads safely.”

While wishing every Lagosians a joyous season ahead, Mr. Bakare Oki has therefore been scheduled to meet market leaders on more advocacy on the Lagos State Environmental Laws.
