    The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) has issued a warning to drivers, especially those operating commercial buses, not to break any traffic laws near the brand-new Apongbon Bridge, CMS Bridge, or Marina on Lagos Island.

    LASTMA General Manager Bolaji Oreagba made this disclosure during his working visit to Apongbon Bridge on Lagos Island today with the Authority’s Enforcement and Compliance team.

    Mr. Oreagba issued a warning to drivers of commercial buses to stop parking carelessly on setbacks, kerbs, and walkways in order to prevent other road users and vehicles from moving freely.

    “Let me send strong signal to every motoring public particularly commercial bus drivers to immediately vacate from illegally loading and dropping passengers on both Apongbon and CMS bridges as anyone caught would be prosecuted at the Lagos State Mobile Court.

    “The newly introduced Traffic Management Solutions (TMS) cameras would bring sanity, transparency, orderliness, civility and voluntary compliance on traffic management and control on our roads across Lagos”

    The Chairman of the Lagos Island Branch E of the Lagos State Parks and Garages Management, Mr. Idowu Onikoyi, stated that a taskforce had been established within the organization to remove bad commercial bus drivers.

    He said that they have started a serious education drive to inform all of their members—including all of the traders around the entire Apongbon bridge—of the need of adhering to government directives.
