The General Manager of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Bolaji Oreagba, has advocated establishment of more ‘traffic safety advocacy clubs’ in both public and private schools to improve traffic management.

The General Manager of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Bolaji Oreagba, has advocated establishment of more ‘traffic safety advocacy clubs’ in both public and private schools to improve traffic management.

Oreagba said this, yesterday, during an interactive session with students of ‘Dee-Gee Secondary School’, Ebute-Metta, Lagos, who came on a courtesy visit to commemorate with him on his 365 days in office.

He said the establishment of more of these clubs in schools would go a long way in inculcating traffic safety measures into the students at a tender age.

“These young students are definitely the future of this country. So, if you catch them young by impacting traffic knowledge in them, there would be massive reduction in accidents on our roads in the nearest future,” he said.

He, however, enjoined parents and guardians to always be a good example to their children by obeying all traffic regulations and road signs whenever they are on board with them.
