Traffic law violators will soon meet their match in Lagos with the planned introduction of electronic mobile devices by the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

LASTMA said it has concluded plans to unveil the mobile device to electronically track and issue tickets to traffic law violators in the state.

The device, Traffic Management Solutions (TMS), is meant to capture videos and pictures of traffic violations in real-time as they occur, without the threat of harm to the traffic officers.

The device, which has been on a test-run for the past three months, is expected to trigger the consciousness of motorists to be law-abiding while obeying traffic rules.

The Deputy General Manager of LASTMA, Comptroller Isaac Adetimiro, said this at a forum organised to explain the device and its functionality in Lagos at the weekend.

Adetimiro said the technology has become imperative to efficiently and effectively manage traffic without creating traffic flow obstruction through the interaction of LASTMA officers with violators on the road.

With the device, LASTMA’s officers would no longer physically and verbally engage violators on the road, but only use it to take videos and picture evidence of the violation.

On the operational process, he said that the Traffic Violation Management System (TVMS) through the device included data capturing, data processing, and data storage.

According to him, the violation time, date, place and location would be captured, and the device would transfer videos and pictures to the data processing centre for scrutiny, which would enhance transparency in the fines for offences.
