The Lagos state government has issued a seven-day ‘vacation order’ to motorists and commercial bus drivers operating on top of bridges across the state, with a move to remove every infraction impeding free flow of traffic on bridges across state.

The special adviser to the Lagos state governor on transportation, Sola Giwa, in a statement said despite several warnings, commercial bus drivers popularly known as ‘danfo drivers’ have continued to defy government order and causing serious obstructions around these bridges with great negative impacts on the integrity of the bridges and traffic.


The official said the government has constructed bus terminals and garages for commercial activities in the state, ordering motorist/commercial bus driver operating along ‘Apongbon’ and ‘Idumota’ (cater) bridges, ‘Elegbata:, ‘Ebute-ero’ and ‘Ejalonibu’ must as a matter of urgency vacate these areas.


The statement also noted that LASTMA would commence strict enforcement operation immediately after the expiration of the ultimatum until zero tolerance is achieved across the state, adding that violators would be charged to the Lagos state mobile court for prosecutions.
