The Commissioner for Transportation, Lagos State, Ladi Lawanson, has said over 60 per cent of vehicles tested at the state’s Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service have faulty brakes.
 Lawanson made the disclosure during the inauguration of additional four Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS) centres.

He said: 
“Other vehicles failed due to issues relating to lighting, suspensions, tyres and so on.
 These efforts have been tripled with the launch of the eight new centres, which will provide a faultless and human error-proof system that will indicate the state of your vehicles.

According to him, for the state to live up to its billing of true smart city, it has to create a platform for opportunities and accomplishments to protect lives and property. 
Lawanson said through the centres, the goal of meeting the United Nations Decade of Action goal, which targets reducing road accidents by 35 per cent globally, would be attained.

LACVIS Managing Director, Prince Segun Obayendo, praised Governor Akinwunmi Ambode for having the courage to change the old template that has left on its trail huge casualties as a result of road accidents. He said what the government is doing is prescribed by the constitution as vehicle owners are under the law expected to ensure that their vehicles are road-worthy and do not constitute danger to other road users.

He said the eight centres in addition to the two inaugurated in 2017 at Ikorodu and Ojodu Berger, would assist to ensure that all vehicles tested and certified were roadworthy. The commissioner inaugurated Oko-Oba-Agege, Ayobo, Oko-Afo, Badagry, PWD, Gbagada, Agric-Isawo and Epe computerised vehicle inspection centres. (Guardian)
