LASG deploys alternative strategy to apprehend traffic offenders

-

- Advertisment -

Lagos State Government, in its bid to ensure free flow of traffic, has directed the State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, Officials to employ the system of booking traffic offenders, rather than impounding their vehicles which is fraught with a lot of inconveniences.

The directive was handed down today to the officials of the Agency by the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Mr. Oluseyi Whenu while briefing them on new Government’s policy thrust in the transportation sector.

While government appreciates their invaluable contribution to the current traffic situation in the State, he said more emphasis should be placed on free flow of traffic and less on arrests.

According to him, “the new traffic maintenance system would ensure that traffic offenders are booked and given a grace period for payment, while defaulters would be apprehended at home through the detailed information on the motor vehicle database”.

He said LASTMA Officials are a reflection of the State Government, and they should ensure that their activities add value to the State Government’s covenant with Lagosians which is geared toward making life easier for the residents.

While urging Lagosians to reciprocate government’s gesture by obeying all traffic laws and regulations, he called on all motorists, whose vehicles have been apprehended by LASTMA in the past, to visit the appropriate LASTMA depot for claim of their vehicles after proper documentation, assuring them of a more flexible process for prompt service delivery.
