The Edo State Traffic Control and Management Agency (EDSTMA) has concluded plans to ensure strict enforcement of color codes for commercial taxi operators in the state.





In a statement, Managing Director, EDSTMA, Dennis Oloriegbe, said the agency is undertaking the exercise in compliance with the law and order guiding the operation of commercial vehicles in the state.



According to him, “EDSTMA hereby reiterates Edo State Government’s existing directives on the use of unauthorized color code of all intra-state commercial vehicles within Benin metropolis except for vehicles painted with authorized color code, ‘Yellow and Red.’



“Consequently, any intra-state commercial vehicle found in breach of the above directive (s) will be impounded on sight and enforce painting before release,” he added.
