To ensure free flow of traffic, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) officials have been directed to go for booking of offenders, instead of impounding their vehicles.
Ministry of Transportation Permanent Secretary Mr Oluseyi Whenu told LASTMA top officials yesterday that......emphasis should, henceforth, be on flawless flow of traffic.
“That is the minimum we owe the people of the state,” he said, adding that LASTMA should synergise with other security agencies to ensure enforcement of Lagos Road Traffic Law 2012.
He directed LASTMA officials to consider alternative traffic management methods rather than arrest of offenders and seizure of their vehicles.
Whenu said a more perfect traffic management and documentation regime is coming under which offenders would be booked and given time to pay. Defaulters, he added, would be apprehended at home through the information on the motor vehicle database.
