The Lagos state government intends to reduce traffic gridlocks.

To this end, residents have been advised to obey traffic rules and cooperate with the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).

According to Mr Steve Ayorinde, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, these two actions will reduce the notorious traffic jams in the state.

Speaking at the maiden edition of the Lagos Traffic Radio Lecture Series, themed: “Migrating Workforce: The Challenges of Mass Transportation’’, he urged people to work with the government to have a traffic-free state, adding that this would attract investors.

"This administration is determined to make Lagos State and investor’s delight, a place where every investor gets its money’s worth.

For this to become a reality, the traffic situation must be well managed, a task which the traffic radio is wholly committed to fulfilling.

For us to accomplish the free flow of traffic in a megalopolis state like Lagos, we all have significant roles to play; we must obey traffic regulations as well as comply with traffic rules.

LASTMA officials are our brothers and sisters; we must cooperate with them in order to keep Lagos traffic moving,’’ he said.

Do you think Lagos state could ever be traffic-free?
