Did You Observe The #HornFreeDay in Lagos?

Hi SL Fabz,

For the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing the buzz mostly on radio about the Horn Free Day initiated by the Lagos state government. Apparently, October 15th was supposed to be a day where motorists desist from using their car horns. The initiative was a step towards sensitizing residents to the harmful effects of noise pollution.

Although I made a quick trip out of the state yesterday morning, I still did hear A LOT of car horns on my way to the Airport. So today, I’m curious about how the day went and I’d like my dear SL Fabz to fill me in.

Did you observe the Horn Free Day directive? Did drivers around you observe it? Was it truly a Horn Free Day in Lagos?

    In response to ur question, the horn free day was observed in Lagos today. Fashola held a seminar with the staff of Lagos state ministry of transport including the drivers informing them why frequent use of car horns constitute polution to residents and the various petitions he has been receiving from the people on this.
