Commercial bus drivers, conductors to wear uniform

As Lagos State government moves to further strengthen the Road Traffic Law, commercial bus drivers and conductors will soon begin to wear uniform and badges.

Besides, owners of such buses will have their identities aboard the vehicles. This is part of the revelations by the state Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, while briefing journalists on the activities of the ministry in the last 365 days.

He said, “The transport unions have agreed on the type of uniform and the badges they will give to the commercial bus drivers and their conductors. The identities of the owners (owners’ cards) of the commercial buses will also be aboard these buses.”

Again, the commercial bus drivers must be re-certified by attending the drivers’ institute, where they will undergo comprehensive tests  –  including vision and driving tests.

The Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers, Lagos State branch, Mr. Tajudeen Agbede,  reacting to this development,  said the union would always support the government in its efforts to actualise the contents of the Road Traffic Law, which, he noted, aim at saving lives and ensuring sanity on Lagos roads.

He stated, “We are always in support of government by making sure our members obey the Road Traffic Law. It is for the good of everyone in the state.”
