According to the statement “The officers have been charged to ensure motorists and other road users comply with all the State laws with regards to driving and the use of roads so as to prevent unnecessary traffic hold-ups recorded during such festivity in the past,”

The statement pointed out that the agency would arrest and prosecute anyone who violates traffic laws during the season’s festivities, noting that “some unscrupulous persons have made it a habit to engage in dangerous driving the time endangering their lives and those of others.”

The statement maintained that the Managing Director, Baffa Babba Dan’agundi admonished parents to desist from the habit of giving their underage children vehicle to drive especially during the period as any child caught driving would be arrested, fined and have his vehicle seized.

He also stated that reckless driving and over speeding would also be dealt with.

“The general public and all road users are therefore advised to adhere strictly to all traffic laws before, during and after the Sallah Festive holidays to avoid unfortunately incidences that could lead to injury, loss of lives or properties,” the statement added.
