IGP Kayihura ordered the traffic police to ensure strict observance of the right of way and crack the whip on motorists abusing the use of car sirens.
Last week, Inspector General of Police Gen. Kale Kayihura ordered the traffic police to ensure strict observance of the right of way and crack the whip on motorists abusing the use of car sirens.
But barely three days after the directive, it appears there is no change on the road. Motorists are still illegally using lead cars still and disrupting traffic with their sirens to clear the way.
Some of the senior goveremnent officials who do not have right of way but are using police lead cars with sirens include the Inspector General of police, the Chief of Defence Forces and the deputy, the NRM Secretary General, and the Commissioner General of Prisons.
The spokesperson of the ministry Susan Kataike could not confirm whether the officials using the sirens and yet are not designated were abusing the law. She noted that since Monica Ntege Azuba was appointed the Works minister in June, no government official has applied to get permission to use sirens.
