Police, NTSA warn motorists against overloading

20th December, 2019

Inspector-General of Police Hillary Mutyambai has directed traffic police officers manning roadblocks to arrest all excess passengers in PSVs during this festive season.

"The responsibility lies with the passengers. They can never blame the matatu conductor for being the excess passenger," he said. Mutyambai warned that this will be effected before and even after the festive season. 

According to the directive, the officers should allow the rest of the crew to proceed with the journey to the intended destination with the remaining passengers.

The IG said it is the responsibility of the passenger to know when a vehicle is full and thus those who board already filled up vehicles have no excuse.
