Lagos VIS impounds 3,619 vehicles

The Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on Wednesday said the state Vehicle Inspection Service impounded 3,619 rickety vehicles on Lagos roads in the last three months.

Ambode said the vehicles were seized to curtail road crashes in the state, noting that about 416 persons had lost their lives to accidents on Lagos roads in the last three years.

 The governor made the remark at the opening of the Lagos State Computerised Vehicle Inspection Centre (LACVIS) in Ojodu, Lagos, saying that the centre would ensure that vehicles not road worthy were removed from the highways.

Ambode said, “The year 2017 falls within the United Nations Decade of Action with respect to road crashes. The Decade of Action targets reducing road crashes by 35 per cent globally through instituting a safety system that aims at minimising loss of lives through road crashes.

“To ensure this, the VIS in the first quarter of 2017 impounded 3,619 rickety vehicles which can potentially cause fatalities on the road.

“Statistics have shown that between 2013 and 2016, over 416 lives were lost and 2,498 injured due to road crashes on Lagos roads.”

The governor, who was represented by the state Acting Commissioner for Transportation, Anofiu Elegushi, explained that the establishment of LACVIS was in line with international best practices.

The Managing Director, LACVIS, Segun Obayendo, said the centre would look into the emission, braking and suspension system as well as bodies of vehicles.
