Lagos has threatened to punish nightclubs for allowing illegal parking.
Eko Hot Blog reports that the Lagos State Parking Authority (LASPA) has said it will punish some nightclubs for allowing their customers to perpetrate illegal parking on major roads across the state during the festive season.
In a statement on Wednesday, General Manager, LASPA, Mrs Adebisi Adelabu, described the act as an infraction of the State Parking Law.
According to Mrs Adelabu, the authority is ready to go all out against violators of the state’s parking law.
She noted that, while conducting monitoring and compliance exercise across the state’s metropolis during the holiday, LASPA observed that a lot of nightclubs encouraged illegal parking on major roads.
The LASPA boss stated that the indiscriminate parking on the major roads by the night clubs’ customers had been causing heavy gridlock and inconvenience for motorists.
‘’Government is not ready to entertain any form of contravention of the parking law in the state,” Mrs Adelabu said.
“Hence, we will take necessary actions against erring clubs, especially those situated in residential/high density or high traffic flow areas of the state,” she said.
The LASPA general manager commended some night clubs for their compliance with the authority’s zero tolerance mandate for indiscriminate parking.
She, however, advised the non-complying night clubs to obtain parking permit from the authority and get alternative land for parking.
Mrs Adelabu added that punitive measures for defaulting outlets include closing of facilities, clamping/towing of vehicles, among other sanctions.
