LASTMA sanctions 52 vehicles over illegal garages in Lagos 


CITIZENS COMPASS –The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) on Friday, said it has sanctioned 52 commercial vehicles for operating illegal garages and parking indiscriminately around Obalende and Iyana-Oworonsoki areas of the State.

This is part of efforts to ensure smooth traffic flow across Lagos, 

The operation was led by LASTMA Director of Operations, Mr. Peter Gbegemede, following the directives of the Special Adviser to the Governor on Transportation, Sola Giwa who confirmed that the drivers of these commercial vehicles, including private car owners, had been repeatedly warned by the government before the enforcement operations commenced. He emphasized that these operations will continue, reflecting the Authority’s zero tolerance for indiscriminate parking and any impediments to free traffic flow across Lagos.

The Special Adviser expressed his concern over the unsightly and disruptive activities of commercial bus operators, which cause significant traffic issues for innocent motorists.

“To ensure smooth and seamless traffic for Lagosians during this festive season and beyond, 52 commercial vehicles were sanctioned for obstructing the free flow of traffic at Obalende and Iyana-Oworonsoki,” stated Hon. Giwa.

“The enforcement operations will be ongoing, with zero tolerance for illegal garages and indiscriminate parking. We will also remove any impediments on our roads in Lagos.”

The Special Adviser urged motorists to take ownership of the roads and to promptly inform LASTMA of any broken down or abandoned trailer/truck via the Agency hotlines: 08100565860, 08129928490, 08129928515, and 08129928593
