LASG Warns Against Driving Without Number Plates, Covered Plates, Says Vehicles Risk Impoundment

The Lagos State Government (LASG) has issued a resolute warning to motorists found driving vehicles lacking proper number plates or those with obscured ones, underlining the seriousness of such actions in violating traffic laws and endangering public safety and security.

In a recent statement, Mr. Oluwaseun Osiyemi, the Lagos State Commissioner for Transportation, reaffirmed the importance of complying with sections 15 and 16 of the State’s Transport Reform Law (TSRL 2018).

He stressed that driving without visible number plates not only breaches traffic regulations but also poses a significant risk to the safety and security of the public.

The Commissioner emphasized that the absence of visible number plates not only hampers law enforcement efforts but also complicates the identification of vehicles involved in criminal activities.

Underlining the necessity of clearly displayed, unobstructed number plates in accordance with TSRL 2018, he cautioned that failure to adhere would result in strict penalties, including fines and potential vehicle impoundment.

Quoting section 16 of the TSRL 2018, the Commissioner reiterated that driving a vehicle without proper registration or affixed identification marks in the prescribed manner constitutes an offense.

While urging motorists to comply with the regulations voluntarily, the Commissioner reminded them of the imperative to adhere to the State’s traffic rules and regulations. He assured the public of the State Government’s steadfast commitment to creating a safe and secure environment for all road users.
