The Lagos State Government has urged citizens of the state to obey traffic rules and regulations in 2021 for efficient traffic management and transportation.

The Special Adviser to the governor of Lagos State on Transportation, Hon. Oluwatoyin Fayinka, said this in a statement in Lagos on Wednesday.

Fayinka stated that the challenges encountered in the previous years in the course of commuting within the state showed clearly that obeying traffic rules and regulations were necessary in order to reduce traffic gridlock.

He reiterated that efficient traffic management and transportation were crucial to the Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu led administration.

According to him, 2021 will witness intensified road rehabilitation and provision of infrastructure, hence the need for the cooperation and patience of motorists.

He lauded the efforts of the State Traffic Management Authority, LASTMA, in managing traffic flow in the previous years.

Fayinka charged Officers of the Agency to be civil in their dealings with the motoring public as front line ambassadors of government in the transport sector.

The Special Adviser also opined that citizenry of the state needed to play their roles to ensure efficient traffic management, warning that the state would no longer tolerate parking of articulated vehicles on major roads, highways, illegal jetties and barge operation.

He also frowned at driving against traffic (One Way driving), abandonment of vehicles on highways as well as roadside mechanics.

While wishing Lagosians the best of the 2021, Fayinka stressed that the citizenry should obey all traffic laws to complement the efforts of the government in providing a conducive economic environment for all and sundry. (NAN).
