“We are conducting a crackdown to arrest those drivers who do not observe traffic rules so we can ensure that such accidents do not recur,” he said.

The highway has recorded many fatal accidents over the years.

However, the recent construction of Sobea-Salgaa-Mau Summit dual carriageway has reduced accidents.
