No fewer than 15 tankers parked indiscriminately on Apapa- Oshodi Expressway in Lagos were on Thursday Impounded by operatives of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA).
The tankers were said to have been Impounded during another round of strict enforcement operations  along 2nd Rainbow down to Mile 2 Bridge, Oshodi -Apapa Expressway, Lagos.
In a  statement issued by the Director, Public Affairs and Enlightenment Department of LASTMA, Mr. Adebayo Taofiq confirmed that the enforcement operations was carried out on the directives of the Special Adviser to the Lagos State Governor on Transportation Hon. Sola Giwa.
It was further confirmed that some of the impounded tankers were apprehended inside Mile 2 Estates after investigations revealed that some of them now parked indiscriminately thereby causing serious traffic for Motorists coming out from the Estates.
According to Mr. Peter Gbejemede (LASTMA Director of Operations) the enforcement exercise was in accordance with the Law and would be continuous until zero tolerance is achieved on illegal/ indiscriminate parking across the state.
The Transportation Special Adviser has therefore urged Motorists to collaborate with government by informing LASTMA of any broken down or abandoned trailer/truck via the Agency hotlines; 08100565860, 08129928515 & 08129928593.
