The Lagos State Traffic Management Authority on Sunday charged youths to act as change agents for their parents/guardians in order to ensure orderliness and safety while using different roads in the state.

The agency’s General Manager, Bolaji Oreagba, made the statement while addressing pupils and students of the Kole-Best International School, Oshodi, during a visit to the agency on the occasion of their ‘Year 2022 Career Day Celebrations’.

According to Oreagba, students numbering over 80 were educated on various traffic signs which include prohibitory and warning signs which must be obeyed by motorists on our roads.

The agency’s Director of Public Affairs Department, Taofiq Adebayo, while quoting the general manager who was represented by the Assistant Comptroller, Lagos East II, in a statement, said students were enlightened on the negative impacts of traffic congestion on human life and the need to regularly ensure free flow of traffic on roads.

“He emphasised why students and other pedestrians must not walk on the road while backing traffic flow, crossing in between two big vehicles, crossing at non-zebra crossing designated areas and crossing on the highways including other road activities students should desist from for safety.

“The Lagos State School Traffic Safety Advocacy Programme is a unique traffic education programme by the government for primary school children and secondary school students aimed at developing a better understanding of road traffic safety and reducing the impact of trauma on our roads.

“It is also aimed at protecting the future and ensuring sustainable development by catching them young. The youth segment is an essential key in the development of any nation because they have the potential to make change happen for themselves, their communities and the rest of the world,” he said.

Earlier in her address, the Head of Administration of the school, Omobola Lateef, said career day celebrations were an annual event that tutored students in line with the career they have chosen to become in future. Punch
