Lagos State Vehicle Inspection Services (VIS) has extended its various
services to Saturdays to enable motorists in the State revalidate their
vehicle particulars and other services.
Director, Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS) in Lagos State, Engr.
Gbolahan Toriola stated this today at Ikeja, noting that vehicle owners
are mostly busy during the weekdays, hence their inability to obtain the
necessary vehicle particulars as at when due.
explained further that despite the accessibility of 24 VIS Area
Commands and Zonal Offices spread across the State, motorists still find
it difficult to spare the time to obtain the necessary documents
required for their vehicles.
Toriola observed with dismay that motorists who come forward for
renewal were found to be carrying fake vehicle particulars in form of
motor roadworthiness certificates and insurance papers.
further, the VIS Director advised that there is a need for proper
maintenance of vehicles and regular checks which have been made easy
with the establishment of the Lagos State Computerised Vehicle
Inspection Centres (LACVIS).
to Toriola, 10 of such Inspection Centres are available in all the
divisions of the State to facilitate modern technology checks on
stressing that LACVIS operates the mobile facility for groups and
corporate organisations with large fleets of articulated vehicles, Engr.
Toriola disclosed that the Agency has acquired the Automatic Number
Plate Recognition (ANPR) system for checking vehicle particulars and
traffic violators in replacement of physical enforcement.
revealed that since the commencement of ANPR, violators have been
tracked through the use of ANPR and urged vehicle owners in the State to
take advantage of the weekend services extended to the 24 VIS Zonal
Offices to perfect their vehicle particulars and conduct necessary
checks to avoid the embarrassment that may arise from non-compliance.
