Pedestrians and other road users in Lagos State can breathe a sigh of relief with the recent development in Lagos State now.
The banning of the operation of Vehicle Inspection Officers on Lagos Road came as a suprise some weeks ago but this was further reiterated by the Lagos State helmsman today in Lagos State.
It has been confirmed that the ban of VIO on Lagos State is not going to be temporary but permanent as this was the statement released by the governor of Lagos State,Akinwunmi Ambode on Tuesday in Lagos State.
He also stated that the operations of the Federal Road Safety Corps should be restricted to highways alone.
These are some of the reasons given by the the Lagos State helmsman as some of the basic reasons behind traffic gridlock on our roads and highways in Lagos State.This was stated while the governor was at a public function inaugurating the Pedestrian bridge,lay-by and slip road at Berger Bus Stop.
Ambode stated further that these agencies contribute immensely to traffic challenges on our roads.
He finally submitted that technology will be employed to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certification.
