The General Manager, Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Mr Olajide Oduyoye, has debunked reports of new traffic laws in the state.
The Assistant Director, Public Affairs, Filade Olumide, stated on Sunday that the report in the social media “does not reflect the true laws” the agency was tasked to enforce.
He added that the agency had earlier published the full list of offences and fines on the directive of the governor in 2019.
According to the statement, the primary duty of the agency includes traffic law enforcement, traffic control and management, which are backed by law.
The law, he added, was reviewed by the Lagos State House of Assembly in 2018 and this year.
He, therefore, enjoined law-abiding road-users to ignore the fake list, that any new information on the traffic laws and fines would be published via the agency’s media channels or other authorised avenues by the state government.
He also urged those publishing the fake list to desist from giving credence to it and take it down.
Oduyoye advised all road-users to, at all times, adhere strictly to the traffic laws of Lagos State to avoid the consequences of flouting them.
