The operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) impounded 40 illegally parked trailers, trucks, and tankers under flyover bridges from Costain to Iganmu on Monday.
The General Manager of LASTMA Bolaji Oreagba disclosed this in a statement released by the authority’s Director of Public Affairs Unit, Adebayo Taofiq.
He said the enforcement operation was led by LASTMA’s Director of Operations, Peter Gbedemeje, and carried out immediately after the expiration of a 'seven-day removal order" served on the owners of the vehicles.
Mr. Oreagba pointed out that the majority of the defaulters removed their heavy-duty vehicles before the commencement of the enforcement operation.
LASTMA’s Head of Operations, Peter Gbedemeje stated that the cleanup exercise would be continuous and be extended to other parts of the state.
He confirmed that the owners/drivers of the impounded vehicles would be charged to court.
