Chairman of the Lagos State Environmental and Special Offences Unit, Olubukola Abe, has said enforcement of traffic regulations that restricted Bus Rapid Transit, BRT, routes across the state is non-negotiable, and that any defaulting motorist would be dealt with according to the law.
The taskforce chairman stated this while addressing journalists on the unwholesome activities of motorists on the restricted BRT routes across the metropolis.
He said motorists in the state should brace up for more stringent traffic enforcement from Task Force Officers, especially on BRT routes at Mile 12/Ikorodu axis.
Abe, a Superintendent of Police, said full enforcement would soon commence on the newly commissioned Ikorodu to Mile 12 BRT lane where motorcyclists and commercial buses have turned deaf ears to operating on these forbidden routes.
The chairman declared that all those commercial buses operating illegal garages around Mile 12 under-bridge axis should vacate immediately to enable free vehicular movement around that area as any commercial bus arrested would be impounded by the agency.
Abe further warned market leaders across the state to ensure traders are not encouraged to display their wares on road setbacks and walkways contrary to Lagos environmental laws.
