The Lagos State Government has directed law enforcement agencies to apprehend motorists with defective vehicle registration number plates as well as those without any number fixed on their vehicles.
The state government, therefore, urged motorists to desist from the unlawful act to avoid being prosecuted as the act violates sections 15 and 16 of the State’s Transport Reform Law 2018.
For individuals who are at the moment not willing to register their vehicles for one reason or another, Toriola advised they contact the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency, MVAA, of the State for the issuance of a Temporary Vehicle Tag (TVT) in line with section 193 of the TSRL, 2018 pending their final decision on permanent registration or otherwise.
“The Law Enforcement Agencies have the been mandated to apprehend defaulters. I urge vehicle owners to comply with the State Government to strengthen the security architecture already put in place,” Toriola stated.
