Finally, Ambode bans VIOs, FRSC from Lagos roads

To adopt technology–driven enforcement

Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode has finally banned the State Vehicles Inspection Officers (VIOs) and the Federal Road Safety Corps, (FRSC) from operating on all Lagos roads.

The governor specifically advised the FRSC to restrict their operations to highways and stay off streets in the Lagos metropolis, while the VIS is completely banned.

Governor Ambode declared this while commissioning the pedestrian bridge, lay-by and slip road at Ojodu-Berger Bus Stop, saying that it had been observed that VIOs and FRSC contributed significantly to traffic gridlock in the Lagos metropolis.

The governor said that rather than worsening the traffic gridlock in the state’s roads and rubbished the achievement recorded by his administration in the name of enforcing road traffic laws, his administration would go the way technology-driven law enforcement strategy to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certification.

Ambode said: “Let me use this opportunity to reiterate that Vehicle Inspection Officers (VIOs) have been asked to stay off our roads permanently. We also advice the Federal Road Safety Corps to stay on the fringes and highways and not on the main streets of Lagos.

“It has become evident that these agencies contribute to the traffic challenges on our roads. We will employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certification.”
