Daily Trust gathered that officials of Lagos State Transport Management Authority (LASTMA) and members of the state branch of National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) were at strategic points to monitor compliance.
It was observed that there was a level of compliance by motorists in Ikeja, Agege, Oshodi, Airport Road, Magodo, Ikorodu Road and the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
A private car owner, Mr. Ojelabi Buraimoh, said from his home in Aboru at Agbado Oke-Odo Local Council Development Area to the Lagos State  secretariat, Ikeja, he did not use the horn at any point.
“I was very conscious and determined to observe the horn-free day. I drove through the Iyana-Ipaja to Agege down to the secretariat without pressing the horn. I observed that I was not the only one who complied with the government’s directive, Danfo drivers’ also complied,” he said.
A journalist, Taiwo Olapade, who lives in Surulere, said he drove through the Ikorodu road and observed that the area was quiet as many motorists did not use the horn. He however added that he used his twice.
Mrs. Aina Fabunmi, a banker who lives at Mafoluku area of Oshodi and works at Allen-Avenue, Ikeja, said she did not use horn despite the fact that she drove through a densely populated area.            
However, motorcycle riders and tricycle operators did not observe the day, as was expected of them.
Governor Babatunde Fashola, had earlier said the measure was to check noise pollution. “It is for our own good, it is for our health, it is for our life.”
