The Lagos state governor, Mr Akinwunmi Ambode has ordered strict enforcement of the state traffic law to bring sanity on Lagos roads
He also ordered the state Attorney General and the Ministry of Justice to increase the number of mobile courts in the state to 20 to summarily prosecute traffic offenders.


While lamenting the recent killing of an official of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Rotimi Adeyemo, the governor asked that his family be compensated with N10m.
Ambode spoke on Sunday after a session with LASTMA leadership and heads of other security agencies in the state at the LASTMA head office in Oshodi.
“For Lagosians, it is very clear that the government will not continue to fold its arms and allow our officers to continue to be in areas of danger. First, I will appeal to all of you that we must obey traffic laws. Secondly, we cannot turn this state into a state of lawlessness. So, from this moment onward, all our security agencies and also all the officers that are concerned have been directed to discipline any traffic offender that is arrested.
“The government will deal squarely with any traffic offender from this moment onward. We don’t want people to take advantage and say this is Christmas or election period; we have the majority of our people to protect and we have the majority of our people to also make sure that they use the roads safely. So, we will not allow traffic offenders to go scot-free anymore,” he said.

While commiserating with LASTMA over the killing of Adeyemo, the governor said the incident was one too many, adding that a total of 18 officers were lost to such situation and 24 permanently incapacitated in various hospitals in the last one year.

  1. Mazda CX-3 provides mileage of 29 mpg in City and 34 mpg on the highway, which is fairly frugal for a 2-Liter motor.

  2. 2018 Toyota 4Runner is an off-road vehicle, which is apparent from its 4-liter V6 engine being paired with an outdated but trustworthy 5 speed automatic. This adds to its reliability. Although 4Runner doesn’t have the most powerful engine or transmission, it surely has the most reliable and rigid one.
