The Sissala East Municipal assembly has made plans to create space for tricycles in the municipality where they can be stationed while going about their regular clientele.
The intention of creating a station for the tricycles is to regulate their activities within the municipalities and also help, check crime and as well give them recognition to make it easier for customers to identify them when necessary.
This is an initiative under the National Youth Authority which seeks to register youth groups and engage them for skill training and other youth development opportunities. In a stakeholder meeting yesterday with the handlers of tricycle, Municipal Chief Executive Hon. Karim Nanyua stated that “the creation of station became necessary because of congestion along the road due to unlawful parking during Tumu market days and its associated with risk”.
He said it is intended to avoid unfortunate occurrence in case there is any accident because of overcrowding and congestion. He has also pledged a road safety training for all tricycle drivers within the Municipalities to ensure that they will be safe riding on our roads.
Meanwhile the Police commander DSP Stephen Abanga has cautioned that the “motor car riders must be careful of who they do business with to avoid being used as a shield for crime. He said they need to be critical of what form of business their customers engaged them to do to avoid being involved in crime”. He warned them that they must also learn how to use the road by obeying road regulations.
whilst they were encouraged to form associations, members have expressed gratitude for the move by the National Youth Authority and the Municipal Assembly to bring them together to assist them.
