Governor Sanwo-Olu has reduced fines for traffic infractions in the state.

The state government announced this on Thursday in an official statement titled, ‘Remorseful traffic offenders get Sanwo-Olu’s clemency to pay reduced fines.’

The Governor met with some of the traffic offenders during an unscheduled visit to the Lagos State Environment and Special Offences Enforcement Unit (Task Force) holding facility in Alausa, according to the statement.

The purpose of the visit was to gain access to the unit’s operational activities. Some of the traffic offenders, on the other hand, met with Governor Sanwo-Olu, pleading with him to intervene in their cases.

Despite reprimanding the traffic violators, the Governor decided to reduce the fines for their offenses.

According to the statement, Governor Sanwo-Olu stated, “You all (offenders) have admitted to violating traffic regulations, and you are here because you do not want to be arraigned for your offenses in our mobile court.”

“I’ve asked for a list of all vehicles in this facility, and I’ll be meeting with Task Force officers about it.”

“We will still obtain a judgment on your offenses, but we will give you the option of reducing the fines to be paid.”

“If I give you this chance, you must not be caught breaking traffic laws again.” There are laws, and no one is above the law.

“I will intervene to reduce your fines, but you must be remorseful.” If he is caught again, his vehicle will be completely impounded. You must obey the law and respect our fellow citizens’ lives.”
