LASG IMPOUNDS 100 COMMERCIAL MOTORCYCLES ON RESTRICTED ROUTES

In continuation of government efforts to ensure sanity on Lagos roads as well as to rid restricted routes of defiant motorcyclists, the operatives of Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit over the weekend impounded 100 commercial motorcycles.

The Chairman of the Agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye, who led the enforcement exercise, disclosed that the 100 motorcycles were impounded around Navy Town at Alakija, 2nd Rainbow and Festac Town, adding that the operation was carried out to halt the abuse of traffic laws by commercial motorcycle operators.

“The discouraging high statistics of motorcycle accidents and the compelling need to enhance safety on Lagos roads led to the promulgation of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reformed Law 2018”, Jejeloye stated.

He noted that apart from dubious elements using motorcycles to perpetrate criminal activities, the influx of many illegal motorcyclists into Lagos without any traceable address and valid means of identification remains a huge security and safety threat to residents.

“In accordance with the Law, every motorcycle operator must wear crash helmets, be above 18 years, not ride on kerb/median/road-setbacks, avoid restricted routes, must not carry more than one passenger/pregnant woman/adult with baby/child below 12 years, not install any musical gadgets, must wear an apron, not operate beyond 10 p.m, operate with a rider’s permit and have their motorcycle registered with Government”, he said.

While warning the general public, especially motorists, to ensure that their valuable items are safely kept while in traffic, the Chairman solicited for the cooperation of all residents in providing useful security information about criminal activities to security agencies through the Lagos State free Emergency Toll Lines 112 or 767.
