Naijauto has gathered that in a bid to reduce the ever-recurring Lagos state traffic gridlock, Governor Sanwo-Olu has now placed a ban on the operations of VIOs during morning rush hours.


Lagos VIOs is not allowed to operate during morning rush hours to reduce traffic gridlocks

According to reports, this ban was announced on Tuesday 26th of November 2019 by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu as a measure to help curb the recurring traffic gridlock problem usually experienced during the peak periods in Lagos. The governor believes that the stopping, checking and arresting of vehicles by Vehicle Inspection Officers during peak periods contribute to traffic gridlocks in Lagos.

When speaking to newsmen at State House in Ikeja about this new restriction, Governor Sanwo-Olu said;

“We are going to restrict the operation of the men of the VIO to off-peak period between the hours of 12 mid-day to 3p.m,”
