Lagos trains 30k drivers to reduce road crashes

The Lagos State Drivers’ Institute says over 30,000 drivers have been trained from January to November 2019 to reduce road crashes and manage traffic in the state.

The acting General Manager of the agency, Mrs Afusat Tiamiyu, added that about 200 drivers apprehended for violating traffic laws in the state were also retrained within the period.

Tiamiyu spoke at a public enlightenment campaign tagged, ‘Unlocking Traffic Gridlock through Drivers’ Education’ at Tipper Garage, Ojota.

A statement on Tuesday said the campaign, which was attended by over 500 tipper drivers, would go round other motor parks in Lagos.

The LASDRI boss said the campaign was to make better drivers of the men.

She urged motorists and commercial drivers in the state to desist from overloading, drunk driving, use of cell phones while driving, non-use of seatbelts, speeding, traffic lights/sign violation, lane indiscipline, use of worn-out tyres and underage driving, to avoid being prosecuted. Punch
