In a bid to improve road traffic management issues in Lagos state, the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), has begun the deployment of hand held cameras to be used by its men across the state.
Already, the first batch of these cameras which are capable to recording both still pictures and videos, are being used by some LASTMA men in different parts of the state.
It is believed that the technology tagged-Traffic Management Solution (TMS), will improve Lagos Traffic Control, and enhance the efficacy of LASTMA operations.
Speaking on behalf of LASTMA, Controller Adetimiro Olusegun, stated that the technology captures traffic violations in real time as they occur, without the threat of harm to the traffic officers and without creating further traffic flow obstructions.
It also executes fast, easy and accurate Vehicle Road Worthiness compliance checks, thus making Vehicles Inspection officers more effective.
The solution also processes automated paid parking solutions on designated and newly created spaces along major streets sides.
According to LASTMA, TMS will also ensure the “electronic verification of the authenticity of drivers’ licences, vehicle licences and number plates across the entire state.”
