The use of the Traffic Management Solution (TMS) device would help in resolving the traffic problems in Lagos state by eliminating human discretion and curbing the excesses of traffic law violators.


Dr. Frederick Oladeinde the Commissioner for Transportation said this at a press briefing explaining the use of the hand-held device.


According to Oladeinde Lagos with Nigeria's highest state traffic density takes traffic management seriously and is leading in the move towards an upgrade in the management of vehicular movement in the country.


He described the TMS as another milestone in Lagos state's quest to achieve a real-time reduction in travel time and the prevention of traffic violations.


He added that "The TMS will significantly reduce congestion to ensure there is transparency in traffic management solutions in Lagos state".

The Commissioner said the Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) and Vehicle Inspection Office (VIO) would handle the TMS device, which would be linked to a traffic control room.


Providing further clarifications he said the TMS was not a revenue-generating scheme for Lagos state and called on citizens to obey traffic rules.


Responding to questions he said the TMS was a homegrown solution, designed to address the peculiar traffic challenges of Lagos state.


Also speaking at the event the General Manager, LASTMA, Mr. Jide Oduyoye noted that the TMS would help to achieve the following;

  • Enforce existing traffic laws
  • Reduce traffic offenses
  • Change the driving attitude of Lagosians
  • Monitor the enforcement of traffic rules by the officers
