Ahead of the Salah celebration, the General Manager Lagos State Traffic Management Agency ( LASTMA) ,Mr.Bolaji Oreagba called on motorists to apply caution in their use of the vehicles especially by ensuring the safety of their tyres.
Speaking at the Headquarters of the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency in Oshodi Lagos recently, the GM LASMA , urged drivers to consult the vehicle manufacturer’s specification sticker, adding that there is need for drivers to carry out routine inspection of their tyres.
He stated that the event was part of the festive period enlightenment campaign efforts being organized by LASTMA, while calling on motorists to avoid over speeding and consider the lives of others on the road, by ensuring that they don’t buy fairly used tyres.
“They should always look at the manufacturing date of their tyres because a tyre expires after four years. We have been going to churches, mosques and motor parks to sensitise them.
” They are more conscious now. We are also trying to check their blood and sugar levels. We are hoping that with this sensitisation, accidents will reduce to the barest minimum.”
