LASG urges truck drivers to be mindful of height restriction barriers at Stadium, Ojuelegba, others.
Despite the fact that signages have been mounted to alert drivers, trucks still run into them, damaging the facilities.
Barriers were mounted along the route to forestall incessant articulated vehicle accidents that have claimed lives.
The Lagos State Government has once again urged truck drivers to be aware of the height restriction barriers (truck barriers) for articulated vehicles, installed at Stadium, Ojuelegba and Dorma long Bridges.
A statement signed by Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation revealed that trucks still run into them, damaging the facilities, despite the fact that signages have been mounted to alert truck drivers of their presence.
“The State Government has therefore resolved to hold to account, all recalcitrant truck drivers by stationing Enforcement Personnel to enforce the law and oversee the facilities at the designated locations.
“The Lagos State Government is therefore urging truck drivers to show restraint when driving in these areas, as the installation of truck barriers is aimed at preventing accidents.”
The barriers were mounted along the route following a series of stakeholders’ meetings held to forestall incessant articulated vehicle accidents that have claimed lives and property.
