In order to effectively enforce the new traffic laws in Lagos state, officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) are being empowered to administer breathalyzers on drivers to detect their drunkenness. A breathalyzer is a device for estimating blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample.

This is a serious warning for all you "thank God is friday" crooners and moreover, life no get take it easy on your tank level when filling up at the club

It is now a crime for Lagos motorists to eat while driving. You could be nabbed for committing a traffic offence by chewing on plantain chips and the many snacks sold by hawkers in traffic. It is also a crime for Lagos motorists to make or receive phone calls while they are on motion.
The punishment is a three-year jail term or a fine of N20,000 for first offenders and N30,000 for subsequent offences or both for any other breaches subject to the discretion of the presiding magistrate.

The law also banned commercial motorcyclists, popularly known as Okada, cart, wheel barrow and tricycle operators from carrying out their activities on the state’s section of the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Apapa-Oshodi Expressway, Ikorodu Road, Agege Motor Road, Funsho Williams Avenue, Eko Bridge, Third Mainland Bridge, Carter Bridge, Lagos-Badagry Expressway, Victoria Island-Lekki-Epe Expressway and all bridges in the state.
