Traffic Accident increasing in NCD

According to Assistant Commissioner of Police NCD/Central Commander Anthony Wagambie Jr, police were quick to the accidents.

Wagambie said the accidents occurred at 5 Mile, Gerehu, Armani and Vadavada. He said these were accidents broadcasted on the police radio.

ACP Wagambie added that police records showed that most traffic accidents that happened on the weekend were alcohol related.

Traffic Rules Ignored

Madang Provincial Police Commander, Acting Superintendent Mazuc Rubiang, said based on police reports, many traffic accidents are caused by overloading of vehicles.

He said in Madang alone, the issue is rampant and needs addressing, as vehicles are overloading with goods, passengers and even they are towing faulty trucks on vehicles that are unauthorized.

PPC Rubiang said Madang police had been doing awareness through various media platforms and even spoke to drivers not to overload, but the drivers and the passengers are still ignorant.
