Odumosu warns ambulance operators against BRT lane - ITREALMS

ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police (CP) Hakeem Odumosu, has surprisingly noticed the continual disregard to traffic regulations and nonchalant attitudes of ambulance drivers, who in total disregard to his earlier sensitization on adherence to state traffic laws, have continued to drive against traffic as well as recklessly plying the BRT corridors, reports ITREALMS


The Commissioner of Police hereby warns that on no account should ambulances with or without patients drive against traffic or on the BRT lane.

Recall that ambulances are allowed the use of sirens and revolving lights to enable them maneuver their way in traffic gridlocks 

The Commissioner of Police warns that impoundment of ambulances who flout traffic rules have started and it will continue nonstop.

A press statement available to ITREALMS endorsed by DSP Matilda Umiah Ngbaronye, Deputy Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Ikeja, for the Commissioner of Police, quoted CP Hakeem Odumosu as  advising ambulance operators who must ply the BRT lanes, to seek and obtain approval from the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA).

The Commissioner of Police, Further warned health Care Providers who use Ambulances and are fond of plying BRT lanes and driving against traffic to desist from flouting traffic rules or face impoundment as this action of theirs negates section 111 of Lagos State traffic law 2018. Police would not fold its arm when this law is being violated with impunity by members of the public that have penchant for breaking the law.
