MUST READ! Important Information for Car Owners In Lagos

INSIDEMAINLAND– The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transportation, Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola has revealed that the Lagos State Government would begin a crackdown on all unregistered vehicles immediately, by sections 16 and 196 of the Lagos State Transport Sector Reform Law (TSRL), 2018, to improve the safety and protection of lives and property in the State.

The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation explained that the decision to crack down on unregistered vehicles on Lagos roads was influenced by the need to halt the activities of some criminal elements who devise various operational strategies, including the use of such automobiles, to attack unsuspecting members of the public.

Engr. Abdulhafiz Toriola reiterated that the use of unregistered vehicles for criminal activities makes it difficult for law enforcement agencies to track or trace the perpetrators.

He explained that the number plate is a critical security feature of any vehicle because it is the only way to identify the details of vehicles registered in the State Government’s database.

The Permanent Secretary also stated that law enforcement agencies would begin the immediate impoundment of vehicles without licence plates and vehicles with covered licence plates in order to promote the safety and security of lives and property, as well as to restore sanity on Lagos roads.

He urged motorists who have broken state traffic laws to make amends by registering their vehicles with relevant agencies such as the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) and the Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS) to avoid having their vehicles impounded.

Individuals who are currently unable to register their vehicles for various reasons should contact the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) for the issuance of Temporary Vehicle Tags (TVT) in accordance with Section 193 of the TSRL, 2018, pending their final decision on permanent registration or otherwise.

He, however, urged citizens to strictly adhere to and cooperate with the state government, stating that the move is in accordance with the Transport Sector Reform Law (TSRL), 2018 and that it would strengthen the security architecture already in place under Gov. Babajide Sanwo-administration. Olu’s
