Lagos State Transportation Commissioner Calls for Collective Responsibility for Safety on Lagos Roads

 …assures government intervention

In a bid to prioritize the safety of all commuters traversing Lagos roads, the State Commissioner for Transportation Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi has appealed to all drivers, particularly those navigating the newly rehabilitated Third Mainland Bridge to adhere to designated speed limits of 80 km per hour.

Recognizing the pivotal role of cooperation in safeguarding lives, he emphasizes that such compliance not only ensures personal safety but also protects other road users.

While assuring the State Government commitment to enforce the speed limit, the Transportation Commissioner pleaded equal significant role by the passengers.

He urged them to actively participate in fostering a culture of safety by making it a duty to remind drivers to uphold the recommended speed regulations.

Should any driver persist in flouting these essential guidelines, he encouraged passengers to promptly report such instances to the nearest Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) outpost.

He further urged commuters to report overspeeding drivers to the following hotlines; 09020009000, 09020004000.

Mr. Osiyemi’s appeal comes in the wake of a tragic accident on the Third Mainland Bridge yesterday, which resulted in two passengers being plunged into the Lagoon.
