By Godwin Oritse

Lagos State Waterway Authority, LASWA, has warned users of waterways in the state to observe all safety rules and regulations during this yuletide.

LASWA’s Managing Director, Mr.Yinka Marinho, in a statement, weekend, said fog and darkness restricts visibility, warning that boat operators must maintain safe speed limit with a view to avoiding accidents.

He said: “A safe speed is one at which you can stop and avoid a collision, considering the circumstances and conditions at the time.

“You wouldn’t drive fast on a dark road without headlights, the same applies on dark waterways. Boat drivers have to be very careful during this period of Christmas.”
