We resumed traffic rules enforcement again – Enugu Govt

Clamping EnuguThe Enugu State Government has given rea­sons why it resumed clamping of vehicles that committed traffic offenc­es, saying that it was in the overall interest of the people of the state espe­cially road users.
In a statement signed by the State Commis­sioner for Transport, Mr Vitus Okechi, “the gov­ernment regretted that the rate, at which motor­ists were abusing traffic rules and regulations in the state since after the governor ordered the suspension of the collec­tion of fines for traffic of­fences in Enugu metrop­olis, was alarming and a threat to security of lives”
Mr Okechi stressed that most road users in the state no longer obey traffic rules and regula­tions, adding that such an untoward action was the cause of some acci­dents on major roads in the state capital as well as the traffic obstruction being experienced on the roads including the ones newly constructed by the present adminis­tration.
The transport com­missioner added that contrary to reports in some sections of the me­dia, the resumption of traffic enforcement ex­ercise was not targeted to harass motorists but to still discipline and ensure smooth and acci­dent-free transportation in the state capital and beyond.
He disclosed that the exercise was critically reviewed and carefully re-launched in line with the people-oriented pro­grammes and policies of Governor Ifeanyi Ug­wuanyi’s administration to improve the quality of transportation in the state, enhance security, save lives and propel an enduring legacy of a more decent inter-personal relationship between road users and traffic officials.
