Transport Minister Urges Citizens to Express Concerns About New Road Traffic Act

Transport Minister Mike Henry is urging people to register their concerns about the proposed amendments to the Road Traffic Act while it’s being debated in the Upper House of Parliament.

The proposed new-look Road Traffic Act includes hefty fines for traffic offences. It was passed in the House of Representatives on Tuesday. But several persons have been raising concerns that corrupt police personnel stand to benefit from the increased fines.

Minister Henry says the Upper House may make changes to the bill, based on the concerns raised.

He also notes that several matters have been left out of the present bill to amend the existing Act. But Mr. Henry says it will be continuously reviewed.
