Lagos State government release New Traffic rules, Offences and their fines

The Lagos State Government, under the directive and leadership of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu moments ago released new Traffic rules, its offences and their fines.

Lagos state over the years since the time of former Governor, Fashola down to Akunwunmi Ambode has been working hard to ensure the citizens of the state are law-abiding via creating new traffic laws and fines.

Taking a look at the latest updates to those rules, the state has now added months of Jail time for those who break some of those rules with hefty fines added.

How this will pan out with the public and LASTMA officers who have over the years been accused of Brutality and Injustice at all levels is left to be seen.

Below are the new Lagos State Traffic Rules: Offences and their fines:
