Impact of Commercial Motorcyle Operations Ban on the Users in Lagos Metropolis



Though the emergence of commercial motorcycle operations (CMO) came as a big relief to the prevailing transportation and unemployment problems with other advantages such as curbing loss of economic man hour, lateness to work, and other challenges associated with traffic jam, the problem associated with its operations are enormous. The alarming report on crimes with the use of motorbikes and the apparent inability of the law enforcement agencies to prevent and control its persistence are part of what led to the ban of its operations in some part of Lagos metropolis. Oshodi-Isolo Local government was randomly selected among the 16 local government area that made up of Lagos metropolitan area and 200 structured questionnaires was administered. The principal findings of this study are that the ban has significantly reduce the accident cases on highway; also confirmed that Okada are often used for criminal activities and; that the ban on CMO has reduced the rate of criminal activities being perpetrated with the use of Okada. While it is also worthy to be noted that the CMO ban does not contribute to the increase in transport charges and cost.
