Lagos Traffic Officials To Wear Body Cameras – LASTMA GM
The General Manager of Lagos State Traffic Management Authority, Olajide Oduyoye says the agency will employ body camera technology as part of measures to ensure offenders are apprehended with solid evidence.
Speaking on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily, the LASTMA GM said Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu is working towards helping the agency acquire the necessary technologies to checkmate traffic offence within the metropolis.
“This year, we are definitely hoping to start in the next few weeks what you will say are non-approachable offence dealings. That means we are going to be having body cameras on officers to capture incidences because things happen so fast and you can’t really say let me get my camera. But if you have your body camera on that is recording, then, you can capture all sorts of different things that you can use against offenders,” Oduyoye said.
He also disclosed that some persons who violate rules often remove traffic signs to deliberately disobey road laws.
