National Capital District Metropolitan Superintendent Chief Inspector Silva Sika has called for a meeting with all Public Motor Vehicle (PMV) operators at 1 pm on Sunday, February 19, at the Unagi Oval in the Gordons area in the nations’ capital.
The meeting will be with PMV operators and people from the organisations who are responsible for the operation and administration of vehicles in the city, Police, Central Province Transport Authority, the Chief Executive Officer of the Road Transport Authority, Mr Nelson Terema, and the Chairman of the Public Motor Vehicles Association, Mr Jack Waso.
Mr Sika said there is a growing concern about the manner in which public motor vehicles (buses and Taxis) are being driven on public streets by drivers without due care and consideration for other road users, and in violation of traffic rules.
He further added that the PMV operators must make it their business to attend this gathering so they will disseminate the right information to their drivers.
“We all must work together to make our city safe for everyone to move around. I want you all to come so we can meet and discuss this openly. You might have some good things to share with us so please feel free to come to this meeting,” Mr Sika said.
He said the meeting is also open to the public. Mr Sika said the Officer in Charge of Boroko Traffic Senior Inspector Joseph Salle can be contacted on telephone 3234201, Digicel 71361184 or 75518209 to confirm their attendance.
