As component of measures to suppress the several road traffic mishaps, the Northern Regional Minister is calling for spot fines for motorists who go away their broken down autos on the road.
Salifu Saeed states scores of life – more than 2000 every year – have been lost in the state as a outcome of these faulty vehicles typically parked on the road.
Speaking to JoyNews as aspect of the #ArriveAlive marketing campaign, Mr. Saeed suggests until eventually a drastic motion is taken to serve as a deterrent, that norm of motorists abandoning their faulty cars on the road will not stop.
Mr. Saeed states the behavior of motorists leaving their automobiles on major roads mainly because of specialized faults is incredibly rife in the Northern location.
“If they can’t transfer it, they really should contact a tow truck to tow it absent,” he said.
The Minister desires the National Street Protection Authority to take into consideration introducing “on the location fine” to control the menace.
