The Commissioner of Police Lagos State Command, Hakeem Odumosu has frowned at the nonchalant attitude of Ambulance drivers violating the state traffic laws, warning that impoundment of ambulances found on the BRT lane has begun.
A statement signed by the Public Relations Officer SP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said it has noticed the continual disregard to Traffic regulations and nonchalant attitudes of Ambulance drivers, who in total disregard to his earlier sensitisation on adherence to State traffic laws, have continued to drive against traffic and recklessly plying the BRT Corridors.
” To this end, the Commissioner of Police, CP Hakeem Odumosu, warns that on no account should ambulances with or without patients drive against traffic or on the BRT lane”.
He warns that impoundment of ambulances who flout traffic rules have started and it will continue nonstop.
Odumosu advises Ambulance Operators who must ply the BRT lanes, to seek and obtain approval from the Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority, LAMATA.
The Commissioner 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.
According to him, 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
