Wednesday 12th December, 2018-There’s a warning from the Head of the Traffic Department to drivers who transport materials in vehicles uncovered.
Social media users have been posting images of trucks and other vehicles on the roadways, moving sand, stones and other materials without the relevant covering as is prescribed by law.
Inspector Elson Quammie says some drivers are clearly in violation of the vehicle and road traffic amendment regulation 1994 and if caught they will be fined.
The head of the traffic department wants civilians to report instances where vehicles are transporting their materials without taking the necessary steps to secure them. He says their failure to comply can have serious consequences.
