LASTMA, KAI to tackle street trading at Yuletide



The Lagos State Traffic Management Agency says it will partner with other agencies of government, including the Kick Against Indiscipline, to ensure a free flow of traffic during the Yuletide season.

The agency, in a statement on Sunday by its Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department, Mr. Adebayo Taofiq, quoted the General Manager, LASTMA, Mr. Bakare Oki, as saying the move was part of the strategies put in place to ensure smooth traffic around marketplaces during the festive period.

It said this would ensure that activities of illegal traders do not affect travel time before, during and after the celebration.

The statement further quoted Oki as assuring “the motoring public of adequate traffic management and control during the upcoming Christmas/New Year celebrations.”

“All motorists are urged to maintain speed limits as they embark on their journeys into, within and outside Lagos as major entry/exit roads in Lagos like Lagos-Ibadan, Lagos-Abeokuta, Lagos-Badagry, Lekki-Epe expressways and Lagos-Ikorodu-Sagamu highway would be adequately covered by LASTMA personnel for smooth and seamless traffic flow,” Oki said.

He added, “Every motorist must obey traffic regulations, drive within the prescribed speed limit, must avoid reckless driving and also carry out regular maintenance works on their vehicle before putting them on the road in order to avoid road accidents.”

The statement added that Oki had been scheduled to meet with market leaders “on more advocacy on the Lagos State Environmental Laws.”
