Ambode Bans VIO and FRSC on Lagos Roads

Governor of Lagos State, Akinwunmi Ambode has banned VIO and FRSC from Lagos roads saying that these two agencies do not reduce traffic congestion in Lagos but rather add to it

Ambode said this while commissioning the pedestrian bridge, lay-by and slip road at Ojodu-Berger bus stop on Tuesday.

The governor said it had been observed that VIOs and FRSC contributed significantly to traffic gridlock in the Lagos metropolis.

He said the state would employ technology to track and monitor vehicle registration and MOT certifications.

In his words: “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 certifications.”
