The General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Mr. Olajide Oduyoye, has said that the attention of LASTMA management has been drawn to a fake list purported to be new traffic offences and fines published by the agency.
Oduyoye stated that this fake list does not reflect the true laws that the agency has been tasked to enforce and that the agency had
earlier published the full list of offences and fines on the directive of Mr. Governor in 2019.
The General Manager further explained that the primary duties of the agency, which includes traffic law enforcement, traffic control and management is backed by law.
This law was reviewed by the Lagos State House of Assembly in 2018 and still reviewed this year.
He, therefore, enjoined law-abiding road users to ignore the fake list, that any new information on the traffic laws and fines will be published via the agency’s media channels or other authorised avenues by the State Government.
He also urged those publishing the fake list to desist from giving credence to it and take it down. Oduyoye advised all road users to, at all times, adhere strictly to the traffic laws of Lagos State in order to avoid paying the consequences of flouting them.
