LASG Tasks Residents on Parking Culture

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Lagos State Parking Authority has reaffirmed its commitment to improving the parking culture as part of its efforts to combat indiscriminate parking.

Adebisi Adelabu, General Manager of LASPA, stated that the authority had continued to strengthen its advocacy campaigns to educate residents about the negative impact of illegal parking on major roads, which was a major contributor to traffic congestion across the state.

Adelabu stated that the authority was tasked with regulating and managing all types of parking, as well as registering all existing private and public parks.

Furthermore, he reiterated that if every citizen could follow the agency’s regulations, roads and walkways would be given new life, as technology would be used to aid an effective parking system.

While noting that the initiative was in line with Governor Babajide Sanwo-Transportation Olu’s administration’s and Traffic pillar, Adelabu emphasized the importance of having a coordinated parking management system in order to achieve the 21st-century economic vision.

She said, “The government intends to drive social change as Lagos is rapidly becoming a smart city and our authority is also working to clamp down the excesses of commercial vehicles and residents who turn open spaces and walkways into parking lots.”

According to Adelabu, some of the difficulties encountered can be attributed to the negligence of some event centres, religious organizations, and property owners who fail to include parking space in their building plans, causing a great deal of inconvenience for residents.

She added, “The need for this intervention cannot be overemphasized as the government is committed to making society safe and convenient for all residents and visitors.

“The government will not charge anyone for parking in their compound, and the government is committed to providing lasting solutions to parking challenges across the state.”

She encouraged all residents to visit the agency’s website for more information on LASPA’s activities.
