The Lagos State Government has once again urged truck drivers to be aware of the height restriction barriers, (truck barriers) for articulated vehicles, installed at Stadium, Ojuelegba and Dorma long Bridges.
The barriers were mounted following series of Stakeholders’ meetings held to forestall incessant articulated vehicle accidents which has claimed lives and property.
Signages have been mounted to notify truck drivers ahead of the height restriction barriers, but unfortunately, they run into them, damaging the facilities.
The State Government has therefore resolved to impose sanctions on drivers who violate the rules by stationing Enforcement Personnel to oversee the facility at the specified locations.
The Lagos State Government is equally urging truck drivers to exercise patience when driving in these areas, as the installation of truck barriers aims to prevent accidents.
