The driver of a white Rolls-Royce Phantom 7 ultra-luxury sedan narrowly escaped vehicle impoundment after been captured taking one-way lane in Lagos.
In a video posted to Carcontinent official Instagram page, the Rolls-Royce Phantom 7 along with an excort vehicle can be seen driving against the traffic on a one-way road to beat the lane stopped by the Red Light.
The caption of the video shared online reads :
“A trick bus drivers use, same thing a Rolls-Royce guy is doing. Anyways the owner of the car wasn’t inside the car, and driver dey do wetin dey e mind.
“But LASTMA use to be there normally but they no fit stop am. Just carry Corolla or Camry pass that place, you will pay 30-50k.”
Autojosh can’t say what would have happened if officials of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) had spotted the Rolls-Royce driving against traffic, but Lagos State’s task force would have impounded it.
Remember that vehicles impounded by the Lagos State’s task force for flouting traffic rules and regulations, especially those driving against the flow of traffic, are auctioned off to the public.
Speaking during a public auction of impounded vehicles last year, the Chairman of the agency, CSP Shola Jejeloye, said driving against traffic will not only disrupt the free flow of traffic but also endangers the lives and property of other road users in the State.
He said :
“From our records, 80% of hit-and-run victims on Lagos roads were knocked down by motorists who drove against traffic, especially in the early hours of the day”.
