Traffic violation: LASTMA Officials to Carry Body Cameras – GM

Olajide Oduyoye, General Manager of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, has said that the agency would now deploy technology to nab traffic offenders in Lagos State. The MD said that officers would use body cameras precisely to catch traffic offenders.

Mr. Olajide said this while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily’ programme.

The GM who said technology is way to go for LASTMA said the state governor, Babjide Sanwo-Olu is working towards helping the agency acquire the necessary technologies needed.

According to the GM the governor approved the deployment of technology for them to improve communication last year.

“This year, we are definitely hoping to start in the next few weeks what you will say are non-approachable offence dealings. That means we are going to be having body cameras on officers to capture incidences because things happen so fast and you can’t really say let me get my camera.

“But if you have your body camera on that is recording, then, you can capture all sorts of different things that you can use against offenders, he said further.

The LASTMA MD also alleged that some traffic violators most times remove traffic signs to deliberately disobey road laws.

“Those who willfully disobey traffic signs go in the middle of the night to remove those signs. When they are caught, they will say that there were no signs. They go and remove the signs to prove they aren’t aware of the signs. This happens all the time,” he said.
