Lae PMV operators put on notice

The Lae police boss, Anthony Wagambie junior, has raised concerns on the number of un-roadworthy PMVs on the road in the second largest city.

Met Supt Wagambie said vehicle owners know the rules and regulations but continue to defy them to make money.

He is warning PMV operators to get their act together and start looking at fixing up their buses or replacing the old buses if possible.

Wagambie says that this warning must be adhered to, or penalties will be taken; Traffic rules apply, and these un-roadworthy PMV’s pose great risks on commuters as well as the traveling public.
