EKOCITY MAGAZINE — The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has urged motorists to comply with the relevant traffic laws operating in the State, vowing to deal decisively with violators in accordance with the law.
The General Manager, LASTMA, Mr. Olawale Musa, on Thursday, said the agency was shocked with recent action of some motorists who had formed the habit of flouting traffic laws and disregarding directives of traffic personnel on the roads.
“Such road indiscipline and lawlessness were capable of returning chaos and disorderliness to the roads.”
“The agency had been inundated with calls and complaints from spirited members of the public to act decisively on violators of traffic laws, but that it was not uncommon to see motorists disregarding traffic lights, zebra signs and repairing faulty vehicles on main carriageways.”
LASTMA would not condone such act and any motorist caught would be dealt with accordingly, Musa said.
He, however, assured members of the public that LASTMA had heeded their calls, and sanity would be maintained, as the agency would not allow a few disgruntled motorists to truncate the existing orderliness on Lagos roads.
