By Bose Adelaja
Lagos State government has urged motorists to ensure
computerised inspection of their vehicles in order to
ascertain the condition even as it said a total number of
779 vehicles were inspected since the exercise took off in
March.


Addressing journalists during a facility tour at Lagos
Computerised Vehicle Inspection Center LACVIS, Head,
Planning and Research and Coordinator, LACVIS Project,
Engr Olayemi Olumide, said this will minimise accidents.
According to him, the step is in line with global best
practices as LACVIS will leave no stone unturned to ensure
that lives and property are safe on the highways.
He said that out of the vehicles inspected, 263 vehicles
passed the tests while 516 failed and owners asked to fix
the problems within 30 days and repeat the inspection
which include braking, steering, chasis, emission, lighting
system, tyres, suspension, visibility and supplementary
tests.
Olumide said 10 computerised vehicle inspection centers
will be built across the state by December. “All corporate
organisations, associations, unions and other commercial
vehicles owners whose vehicle documentations hae expired
are required to bring their vehicles physically
forbcomputerised inspection while private vehicles are to be
inspected annually and commercial vehicle bi-annually. The
inspection of vehicles will enable the state to develop a
data base of vehicles so as to ascertain condition of
vehicles due to state of roads or fake spare parts”, he
said.Also speaking, LACVIS Chief Operating Officer, Mr
Segun Ogunnaike, said the exercise was geared towards
safety.
