The commissioner further urged residents to make use of pedestrian bridges.

He wrote, “Crossing the highway is an offence in Lagos State. Lagos State Government has given a marching order to the #LAGESCOfficial (KAI) Marshall and other law enforcement officials to arrest anyone crossing the highway and then charge them to court immediately.

He wrote, “Please, use the pedestrian bridges across the state.”

We Will Impound Your Vehicles

Meanwhile, the Lagos State Government has read the riot act to motorists who drive vehicles without proper number plates or use covered ones.

The state government warned that such individuals stand the risk of having their vehicles impounded.

The Commissioner for Transportation, Oluwaseun Osiyemi, issued the warning in a statement on Friday in Lagos.
