Although the government observed that the cooperation was not maximum in some areas as motorists blared their horns more loudly thereby going against the directives.

The officials of the ministry of transportation led by the Lagos state commissioner for transportation, Mr. Kayode Opeifa, monitored the exercise in some areas and observed that there was reduction  in the usage of the horns by the motorists, “which means our motorists bought into the idea of reducing noise on our roads.”

Meanwhile, the executives of the road unions in the state were lauded by the commissioner for the efforts they put in to ensure that the road users were properly guided by observing the exercise.

Opeifa, said the exercise was bent on reducing noise pollution emanating from horns,  improve road courtesy, lane discipline and sensitize road users on the need for reciprocated respect among themselves..
