Rapid Response Squad single lane queue at filling station6

In furtherance of the determination of the Lagos State Government to ensure free flow of traffic across the metropolis, the officials of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS) of the Nigerian Police on Monday embarked on massive enforcement of the directive banning indiscriminate queues at petrol stations.

The RRS team led by the Commander, ACP Olatunji Disu enforced the directive on the long stretch of Lagos-Abeokuta expressway starting from U-Turn Bus stop down to Toll Gate which is the boundary between Lagos and Ogun States.

The team specifically removed from the road all vehicles forming more than one lane while queuing for fuel, a development which greatly reduced the traffic gridlock caused by the indiscriminate queues.

The team also worked on the long stretch of Iju Road from Pen Cinema down to Fagba Bus stop and some parts of Ikeja axis.

Besides, the team apprehended some commercial bus drivers and private motorists flouting the Lagos State Traffic Law, as well as other environmental offences.

Earlier, the team visited Ojota, Mile 12, Ketu and some other major areas on Ikorodu Road where the usage of pedestrian bridge was enforced, thereby maintaining law and order.
