Issues in Traffic Law Administration in Nigeria

Abstract

This work examined issues in traffic law administration in Nigeria. The paper traced the historical origin of the promulgation of traffic laws and establishment of traffic agencies in Nigeria. The study revealed that there are not only multiplicity of offenses and punishments in different statutory provisions in Nigeria, but that different agencies perform the same trac functions like arrest and prosecution with high chances of conflict of duties and without certainty where to draw the curtain with regard to the powers and role of the different agencies. Even though attempts have been made in the past to improve the quality of traffic administration delivery, there are still problems militating against several of the initiatives. At the end, some recommendations were made for possible reforms
