LASG to Seize Vehicles Parked On Sidewalk
The Lagos State Government is set to put an end to indiscriminate parking of vehicles on sidewalks.
Governor Babatunde Fashola on Sunday said there was a need to ensure sanity in people’s attitude to driving and road usage.
He said the Ministry of Physical Planning and other relevant agencies had been instructed to begin aggressive sanitisation of the state roads by removing vehicles causing obstruction to free vehicular movement.
The governor, who was fielding questions from Lagosians during the celebration of his 2,000 days in office said, “I have instructed the Ministry of Physical Planning and other ministries concerned to go out and remove vehicles from sidewalks.
“If you cannot contain your vehicles inside your premises, we will come and take them away.”
The governor also urged traders in the state to desist from trading on the sidewalks, saying it prevents people living with disabilities from having unhindered space to use.
