    There has been a spate of accidents/deaths caused by these marauding trailer drivers, How do you think of a UI turn on 3rd mainland bridge??? so he intended to drive against traffic and possibly have a head on collision with a commercial vehicle???? what are these guys thinking?? do they realize they are driving a ‘weapon”. Everyday in that country there is a major incident involving a trailer.

    I remember the most recent one where a container fell off the bridge at Ojuelegba, Bella Naija carried that story and I commented stating that BUHARI NEEDS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THESE TRAILERS to which someone responded “is Buhari the one driving these trailers??”

    Nigerians!! Nigerians!! Nigerians!! when would we start realizing the power of our voice and effectively use such, yes Buhari is not the one driving it but he is our leader and can/should Drive policy through his minister that would sanitize this industry, this is the CHANGE we asked for! GOVERNMENT IS NOT ONLY ABOUT FIGHTING FINANCIAL FRAUD people are dying everyday due to the acts of negligence and total disregard by these trailer drivers.
    Go to the trailer parks, they are all smoking and drinking alcohol and I know this because I owned trailers, these guys are one of the most irresponsible bunch.

    ONCE AGAIN. I AM CALLING ON PRESIDENT MOHAMMED BUHARI TO INTERVENE in this dire situation.
    1. Institute mandatory inspections on the trucks,
    2. perform random drug and alcohol tests on these drivers.
    3. Mandate that trucks are used only for their built purpose, containers should be securely place on flat beds.
    4.. Enforce cargo Weight limits.
    5.. Phase out old old trucks and provide some kind of Fund/loan to trailer drivers so that they can update their fleet.
    6.. Hold the owners of the goods being transported equally liable for any acts of negligence that result in death or injury..
    7.. Verifiable insurance is a must!!

    In America there are Tractor trailer enforcement units and those guys do not play.. LASTMA on FLEEK!! a typical fine for any infraction would be in the $1000s of dollars.

    This is not rocket science.. I tire man!!
    BTW I supported Buhari in the last elections

      I do not think the trailer was making a u-turn. With accidents it is not pre-determined where the vehicle will end up.

    That truck is not road worthy. The owner, drive etc should be given the bill accrued when clearing it and also given a hefty fine

    This is the height of it, and I hope should be the end of their recklessness.

    Don’t be surprised. This is how the behave. Go to Apapa, mile2 and Western Avenue ( in ward Apapa) and see wonders. The are so stupid, they need to go for mental evaluation. Their rickety vehicles don’t help the madness also, they breakdown at any freaking time. I think the govt should look into implementing policies to check the ages of these trucks and impose ban where necessary.
