Lagos - Lagos State Government hailed the success of the first "Horn Free Day" despite some motorists appearing to ignore directives not to use the horn.
While some drivers complied with the orders from authorities, it was business as usual for a few drivers but it could not be ascertained if this was out of defiance or ignorance of directives.
Lagos Commissioner for Transportation, Kayode Opeifa, however welcomed the conduct by most drivers.
He thanked road union leaders for making their members aware of the Day and the importance of complying.
"There was a marked reduction in the level of honking, which means local motorists bought into the idea of reducing noise on the roads,” Opeifa told journalists after leading some government officials in some parts of the state.
Lagos recently initiated Horn Free Day, marked on Wednesday, to minimise sound pollution.
The problem is rife in Lagos, where traffic congestion is commonplace.
