The Speaker Lagos House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa yesterday urged the police enforcing traffic laws in the state to give ample time to motorists to regularize their vehicle particulars before enforcement to avert chaotic traffic situation in the state.
Reacting to a motion moved by Hon.Sanai Agunbiade on the floor of the House on methodology of enforcement and timing of the Operation Velvet he enjoined the police to jettison the issue of particulars for now and concentrate on enforcement of driving against traffic and illegal use Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) lane by other categories of vehicles.
“People should be given opportunity to obtain necessary documents. We should computerise the system and know those whose papers have expired without going to the roads,” he said.
According to Obasa “The law has been in place for many years, why the sudden action. “We want to appeal to the police to give people time to get necessary documents before they talk of arresting people”
“We also want to say that such an opportunity should not be used for extortion and harassment. The Commissioner of Police should take steps to guide against all these,” he declared.
Obasa also advised Governor Akinwunmi Ambode to direct PWC to start doing palliative measures on the roads in the state despite the fact that there are pressures on the roads.
“Where roads that are repaired within six months start having potholes it is not good enough. It doesn’t make sense for the roads to go bad within months after repairs.
Also speaking, Hon. Olusegun Olulade from Epe Constituency 2 said that the cosmopolitan nature of Lagos State should be considered before any decision is made, adding that the major issue on the operation is for police and security agencies to check documents.
