He explained that officials of the agency carried out enforcement in Isolo, Ojodu – Berger, Ojota, Lagos Island and Surulere last week while the enforcement drive of the agency was also extended to 2nd Rainbow, where it seized 110 motor bikes yesterday.

He emphasized that the agency would do all that is within its power to enforce the restriction of motor bikes on Lagos highways and bridges. He urged Lagosians to desist from patronising motor cyclists plying highways, maintaining that “it’s better to be safe than sorry”.

CSP Jejeloye noted that it is disturbing that motor cyclists are refusing to comply with the Lagos Traffic Law restricting them from operating on highways and bridges, adding that, the law was made in the best interest of the general public.

He stated that enforcing the law is like assisting recalcitrant motor cyclists from killing themselves and endangering the lives of other road users.
