Works to ensure full implementation of its road traffic law

The Lagos State Government has disclosed that it has commenced the installation of 15,000 road signs, to ensure the full and successful implementation of its road traffic law.

In a statement made available to journalists on Monday, the Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, said the addition would complement the existing 10,000 traffic signs on major roads and highways in the state.
Opeifa said the traffic signs would assist road users identify the designated bus-stops, no-parking, no-entry zones and the restricted routes for motorcycles and tricycles, and other information necessary for compliance to the law.

The commissioner highlighted some of the roads where traffic signs had been newly installed as: Ojota, Kudirat Abiola Way; Maryland; Allen Avenue; Ogudu; Iyana Oworo ? Toll Gate; Bourdillon; Mushin; Ojuelegba Roundabout and Surulere.
He urged motorists and road users to be conscious of the signs and be guided by them, in order to make proper use of the roads.
However, Opeifa implored the public to inform the government about areas where traffic signs are still required, to ensure proper coverage as the state prepares for full implementation of its traffic law.
?This is also to implore Lagosians to inform the government through the phone number 08174616936 on locations where they feel that traffic signs are needed,? he said.
?I appeal to all and sundry to obey the road signs and ensure strict compliance to the road traffic law, as the law was made to ensure sanity on the roads, safety of lives and property of Lagosians.”
To the commercial motorcyclists and tricyclists, popularly called okada and keke marwa riders, Opeifa issued a stern warning to ?desist from plying the restricted 475 routes, as anyone found violating the law will be appropriately sanctioned.?
