The Director of Traffic Management and Road Safety (TMRS), Assistant Inspector General of Police Brima Kanneh has on Tuesday 12th July 2022 at police headquarters George street, held a meeting to caution Division Traffic Officers (DTOs).
The caution came as a result of the economic challenges facing citizens following the price hike in fuel and other commodities globally.
Traffic offenses he said are of two categories, “Major” and “Minor” and thus urged them to look at the gravity of the offense before proferring charges.
As an authority mandated by the 1991 Constitution to protect lives and properties, AIG Kanneh maintained that their operations would in one way or the other help in cushioning the economic challenges.
“By that, we are complementing government” he said and therefore called on the DTOs to minimize the arrest of vehicles for little or no traffic offense.
He also called on them to be always tidy in their official outfits and desist from pettiness with commercial drivers.
AIG Kanneh instructed that they brace up to maintain the free flow of traffic.
However, concerns were raised over procession by school authorities without police knowledge and the use of streets as parking space by Church congregation during Sunday service.
