Driving one-way in Lagos? Parking anyhow? See what awaits you

In as much as such clubs and businesses have the rights to run their businesses, our road users equally have the right to free flow of traffic.

RRS vehicle blocks a traffic offender in Lagos

The message is clear, no one is above the law. 

If the Lagos state Police Command is able to maintain its current momentum in combating traffic offenses in the big city, then the dream of a Lagos where traffic flows freely might just become reality.

Recall the Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu had declared a state of emergency on traffic management and control in Lagos in November 2019.

The news coming from the Lagos State Police Command is that it has over the last few weeks arrested 75 persons and impounded 75 vehicles for driving against traffic, a habit also known as one way.

The Command says 28 of the offenders were arrested for driving against traffic while the rest were arrested for indiscriminate parking at different clubs and businesses in the state. 

Such indiscriminate parking results in major obstructions on the highways and streets, causing traffic gridlock. 

“In as much as such clubs and businesses have the rights to run their businesses, our road users equally have the right to free flow of traffic. 

“Business owners and operators of clubs and worship centres have a duty to ensure that their customers, staff, visitors and followers do no create obstructions on the roads where they operate for the benefits of other road users,” Police spokesperson, DSP Bala Elkana said.

The vehicles impounded include private cars, commercial vehicles, trucks, bullion vans and escort vehicles that drove against traffic. 

The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, CP Hakeem Odumosu maintained that the operation will be sustained and called on road users to obey traffic laws at all times.
