The Lagos State Government has expressed satisfaction with the level of compliance by motorists during the maiden “Horn Free Day”, a day without  the use of horn on the roads observed yesterday.
However, government did not record absolute compliance as some motorists violated the directive in some parts of the state by honking their horns.  The state governor, Babatunde Fashola had last week said the initiative was a step towards sensitizing residents to the harmful effects of noise pollution.
Commissioner for Transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, who led officials of the ministry on monitoring exercise in some parts of the state acknowledged there was appreciable reduction in the level of honking, “which means our motorists bought into the idea of reducing noise on our roads.”
The commissioner, particularly, commended members of the road unions, especially, the executives for sensitizing their members on the need to comply with the directive.
Opeifa, said the measure aimed among other things to: reduce noise pollution from the use of the horn, improved road courtesy, lane discipline and draw motorists’ attention to mutual respect for other road users.
