Lagos state government disclaims viral post on new traffic offences and fines
The Lagos State Government has distanced itself from an online viral post titled “New Lagos Traffic Offences and Fines” being circulated on social media platforms,
Also advising that the motoring public should disregard the information in its entirety because it is false and did not
originate from the Ministry of Transportation or Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).
Last week, a list showing purported fines for traffic offences in Lagos state went viral.
However, A statement signed by the Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde and released on Monday,
June 28, emphasizes that the new purported Lagos Traffic Laws were not issuance from the Lagos State Government,
warning all road users to be wary of unscrupulous and faceless elements,
who are out to scam unsuspecting Lagosians of their hard-earned money.
Furthermore, he informs Lagosians and the motoring public that the existing Lagos State Traffic Laws are still in operation,
and they can access the State Traffic Laws on the Ministry of Transportation page, through
the Lagos State website: www.lagosstate.gov.ng.
However, The Commissioner also discloses that the assessment of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Laws of 2018 can also be online,
The acquaintance of the citizens with the various traffic offences and fines existing in the State, can be through a simple google search.
