Lagos State Government on Thursday released the specimen of the 200CC motorcycle approved for use in the state. Governor, Babatunde Fashola of the State had on August 3rd, 2012, signed the road traffic into law which outlawed the use of motorcycle below 200CC within the state metropolis.
Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa who spoke at a stakeholders’ meeting with Courier organisations and motorcycle dealers within the state at Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja, said that the exhibition of the motorbikes became necessary following reports that some motorbikes purchased in the wake of recent restriction on commercial motorcycle operations in the state were not up to the 200 CC capacity approved by government.
While displaying a specimen of one of the motorbikes which fell below what was approved by the government, the commissioner lamented that some “dealers of motorcycle in the state pasted stickers of 200CC on motorcycle which engine capacity falls below the stipulated range.”
