LNP Promises Stringent Measure Against Violators Of “No Go Zone” Restriction
The Deputy Inspector General of Police for Operations Abraham Kromah has warned operators of Motorcycles plying Monrovia and its Environs that they risk being arrested, and forwarded to court for prosecution if they are caught violating both the 10 PM and the “No Go Zone” restrictions instituted by the Liberian Government some five years ago.
The 10 PM restriction prevents motorcycle operators from plying the streets after the hour, while the “NO GO ZONE” disallows motorcycles from plying routes that the police deemed as risky for their wellbeing.
Director Kromah said the LNP is concerned over the increase in the number of accidents related deaths involving motorcycles over the past few weeks in the city, as the result of the blatant violation by motorcyclists in the restricted routes.
He said the political campaign which at the time allowed political parties to use motorcycles in the “No Go Zone” was now over and therefore called on owners of motorbikes and operators to adhere to the police restriction or face the wrath of the law.
The DIGP for Operations said officers of the Liberia National Police have been instructed to enforce the regulation to the fullest which he said is geared toward promoting public safety.
