Lagos restricts trailer movement

WORRIED by the chaotic state of transportation within the metropolis, the  Lagos State government has directed  law enforcement agencies to impound trailers and long vehicles plying the metropolis at day time.

The state government explained that the directive  was in line with Section 2 (i) and 2 (ii) of the Lagos Road Traffic Law 2012, which restrict trailers and long vehicles from plying the metropolis between the hours of 6am to 9pm.

According to the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Oluseyi Whenu, the order was necessitated by the fatal accident involving a container-laden trailer at Ojuelegba last Wednesday.

He explained that the state government would sanction any trailer and long vehicle that contravenes the Law, adding that such vehicle would be impounded and made to pay the stipulated fine accordingly.
