LASTMA sparks at trucks for indecent parking. In an enforcement operation that began on Sunday, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority detained 78 trucks for indiscriminate parking in the Apapa-Ijora area of the state.

This was revealed in a statement made accessible to PUNCH Online on Sunday by LASTMA’s Public Relations Officer, Adebayo Taofiq.

The vehicles were detained by LASTMA personnel in collaboration with appropriate security agencies to ensure smooth and seamless traffic for Lagosians during the festive season and beyond, according to the statement.

According to Adebayo, the agency’s acting General Manager, enforcement activities will continue, and indiscriminate parking and blockages in the axis will not be tolerated.

He asked drivers to take charge of the road and to report any abandoned or broken-down trailers or vehicles to the agency’s hotlines.

“Lagos State Traffic Management Authority today impounded another 78 illegally parked containerised trucks on top High Bridge by Lilly Pond inward Apapa and Sifax axis of Ijora (Olopa) during an early Sunday morning enforcement operations led by General Manager, Mr. Bakare Oki Olalekan, in conjunction with relevant security agencies to ensure smooth/seamless traffic for Lagosians during this festive season and beyond,” the statement reads in part.

“The early-morning enforcement operations lasted from 12 a.m. to 7 a.m. on Sunday.” Mr. Bakare Oki (G.M LASTMA) stated that enforcement actions will be ongoing, with zero tolerance for indiscriminate parking and obstacles in the roadway.

“He, however, called on motorists to take possession of the road and not hesitate to inform LASTMA of any broken down or abandoned trailer/truck via the agency’s hotlines.”
