Traffic police officers are out in full force issuing tickets to motorists who violate the law, following the resolution of an issue relating to the unavailability of traffic tickets.
Inspector Benson Deterville, the officer in charge of the Police Traffic Department, told the Times that officers have now been issued with tickets which were received from the government printery.
He said the officers are now back in full force on the road.
Deterville appealed to citizens to cooperate fully with his men and comply with the traffic laws.
“Police officers will continue to issue violators with tickets,” the traffic police official asserted.
According to Deterville, people felt that because the police were out of ticket books, there was a free for all where people could park indiscriminately in the City and violate the traffic laws.
“However, I must caution drivers that notwithstanding that there appeared to be a lull in the issuing of tickets, this is not so and this has been corrected and the officers are now back in full force on the roads issuing traffic tickets and ensuring that persons are compliant with the traffic laws,” he explained.
