Police impound 210 motorbikes
The District Traffic Officer [DTO] of ‘A’ Divisional Headquarters, Inspector Kabba Sesay, and his team have impounded two hundred and ten commercial motor bikes in the central business district this week .
This was made known to this Reporter at a news conference yesterday at the Central Police.
According to DTO Kabba Sesay, most of the motor bikes that they have impounded are being used for other purposes than the one for which they were registered and licensed.
He disclosed that they were trying to discourage commercial motor bikes from plying the central business district.
He stressed that the operation will continue until they quit the central business district.
He pointed out that most of the Okada riders ply their trade without riders’ licences, using unauthorized routes, riding without helmet and wrongly using one way streets.
He maintained that half way destination by poda-podas was now a thing of the past in his area of responsibility.
He said he was happy to report that Regent Road is now under control as poda-poda and taxi drivers abide with the traffic rules by collecting passengers at the Regent Road Bay for Lumley and Aberdeen respectively.
DTO Kabba Sesay highlighted among other things that, if a driver is caught plying half way such drivers are arrested and charged to Court.
He called on the press to work alongside the Police to weed out lawless drivers and corrupt Traffic Police Officers and Traffic Wardens for the good of the country.
He said he will continue to do the correct thing and never involve himself in anything that will smear his hard won image which he has worked very hard for over the years.
