Lagos State Government has said that henceforth, any arrested offender who drive against the flow of traffic, popularly called “One-Way” will be taken for pyschiatric test and face prosecution.

Commissioner for Transportation, Mr Oluwaseun Osiyemi, stated this on Tuesday, at the commencement of the 2024 ministerial briefing on the activities of the ministry so far during the administration of Lagos State Governor, Bababjide Sanwo-Olu, held at Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.

According to Osiyemi, “The menace of driving against flow of traffic is worrisome and the state government is determined to curb it.

“Henceforth, any offender apprehended will be taken for pyschiatric test as well as prosecuted according to Lagos State Traffic laws.”

Osiyemi, who frowned at the growing activities of fake personnel across the metropolis who claim to work for the Ministry of Transportation, MOT, released some hotlines to report such activities to relevant authorities.

The lines, he said could also be used for reporting traffic situations around the metropolis.

The following are the two hotlines: hotlines: 09020009000, 09020004000.
