Additional 22 motorbikes impounded
Twenty two motor bikes are reported to have been impounded on the orders of the District Traffic Officer (DTO) of the Eastern Police, Inspector Saidu Mike Kargbo.
Disclosing this incident to the Sierra Express Media over the weekend, Station Sergeant, Victor S. Turay, stated that the motorbikes that were impounded last week because of various infractions with the law, have been sent to the Police Training School (PTS) at Hastings for safe keeping, while five of the alleged lawbreakers have charged to Court and four warned.
Sergeant Victor Turay maintained that these bikes will not be released for the next three months as they have been continuously warned to desist from plying within the Freetown central business district.
He disclosed that the operation to stop motorbikes plying the Freetown central business district will continue until the riders comply with the ban.
In a related development, he stressed that any poda-poda driver arrested for either half way destinations or other traffic offences, will be investigated and charged to Court.
He said the queue system which they have introduced for commuters is working. He called on poda-poda drivers and the general public to cooperate with them to make travel within the city an enjoyable experience and not a nightmare.
