The Information Technology System Security Professionals (ITSSP) has called on the Lagos State Government (LASG) to involve stakeholders in its bid to use technology to check traffic offenders.

The ITSSP President, Mr Rogba Adeoye, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that government should involve stakeholders such as ITSSP and the Nigeria Computer Society in its bid to check errant road users.

NAN reports that the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, on June 3, read the riot act to officials of the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA) and the Kick Against Indiscipline (KAI).

He told them that he wanted a situation where they would use technology to arrest offenders rather than harassing them.

“For this innovative project to work, government needs to put things in place to see to its success.

“Government needs to call stakeholders like Nigeria Computer Society, the ITSSP, among others, to a round table to deliberate on the right way to go,’ he said. Adeoye said that there were various methods which could be used for traffic management such as cameras and trackers, but said that this must be matched with personal identification.
