Oki said: “All motorists are urged to maintain speed limits as they embark on their journeys into, within and outside Lagos as major entry/exit roads in Lagos like Lagos-Ibadan, Lagos-Abeokuta, Lagos-Badagry, Lekki-Epe expressways and Lagos-Ikorodu-Sagamu highway would be adequately covered by LASTMA personnel for smooth and seamless traffic flow,” Oki said.

“Every motorist must obey traffic regulations, drive within the prescribed speed limit, must avoid reckless driving and also carry out regular maintenance works on their vehicle before putting them on the road in order to avoid road accidents.”
