LAGOS TO BAN SMOKING IN PUBLIC PLACES

There are indications that Lagos state would ban people from smoking in pulic places, in a statement issued by the State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Mr. Ade Ipaye
He told newsmen that the provisions of the new traffic laws had prohibited people from drinking or smoking while driving in the state.

He said, “It is an offence to smoke while driving, smoking is totally prohibited for drivers; obviously it is not just for safety reasons it is also for health reasons because we are moving towards banning smoking in all public places.
“It is an offence to drive drunk; if you’ve been taking drugs, this law provides for blood test to determine whether you have ingested drugs which are inconsistent with your ability to drive.

Some Lagosians are already confused as to what Lagos is turning to, due to the various laws emanating everyday...I do not have a problem with the laws but are there established measures that will guide the strict compliance to these laws...?
