Over 20 police officers in traffic training

More than 20 police traffic officers are undergoing a familiarisation training of the new road traffic rules.

The training commenced on Monday at the Bomana Police Training College, facilitated by the Road Traffic Authority. 

These are provincial police officers from all over the country.

The Road Traffic Authority aims to train them on the new Road Traffic Rules so they can go back and train the rest of their traffic officers in their respective provinces.

The Road Traffic Authority was established after the Road Traffic Act was passed in 2014.

Transport Secretary Roy Mumu said the Road Traffic Authority is now the one stop shop for all traffic related matters.

Mumu appeals to the general public to familiarise themselves with these new Road Traffic Rules as well as it is important for public safety.
