Errant motorists who are fond of violating the traffic law of the state have been warned to desist or be ready to face the consequences of their actions under the law.

The warning was issued by the Lagos State Special Offences (Mobile) Court.

The Coordinator, Special Offences (Mobile) Court, Mrs Arinola Ogbara, gave the warning during a road show to create public awareness and sensitise residents to the importance of obeying the state’s traffic law.





She noted that driving against traffic and plying designated Bus Rapid Transit corridors and obstruction of vehicular movement on the highway contravened the Lagos State Transport Reformed Law, 2018 and was punishable under the law.

“All motorists, including private car owners, are hereby warned to henceforth desist from all forms of traffic obstructions, driving against traffic, and plying BRT corridors.

“It is disheartening to observe that recalcitrant commercial bus drivers and private car owners are in the habit of disobeying all road signs and signals in contravention of the traffic law, thereby causing an impediment to free vehicular traffic across the state,” Ogbara said.

While highlighting the role of ‘Transportation and Traffic Management’ in Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu’s T.H.E.M.E.S agenda, Ogbara said the Lagos State Special Offences (Mobile) Court was created by the state government to prosecute minor offences, especially those committed by traffic offenders.

She stated that the mobile court had deemed it necessary to sensitise members to the public on the state’s zero tolerance for violation of traffic laws.
