Is the Chief Minister above the law to have violated traffic rules and caused road accident?
The vehicle of the Chief Minister, Jacob Jusu Saffa was seen using the opposite route of Spur Road. As a result, his vehicle ran into an accident with motor bikes.
Vehicles users if going towards Wilberforce are expected to use the right side or path of the two-way road Spur Road.
Instead, the Chief Minister’s vehicle was seen plying the other side of the two-way road which vehicles going towards Lumley should use.
This break of traffic rules endangers road users just as it happens with the Chief Minister’s going against established traffic rules.
This is not the first. Government vehicles usually violate traffic rules without being questioned by traffic police officers.
Are there different rules for different people? Or Ministers are above the law?
