He said the SLRSA cannot work in isolation that is why they are partnering with key stakeholders like the forces to enforce the law and ensure that users strictly abide by all laws legislated in the country.
According to him, the police and the road safety corps are always on the streets to ensure road safety, but road traffic crashes are still on the increase. This ugly trend, he said, must be reversed as “the life of every Sierra Leonean despite his or her social status is equally important.”
Despite the challenges confronted by the authority, Mr. Sannoh said that SLRSA have established thirteen offices across the country in order to achieve the authority’s mandate. He assured that the Authority continue to engage the traffic police and sensitize road users and the public at large especially the commercial drivers.
The SLRSA boss registered his authority’s commitment on incentives and other emoluments for border or check point staff to motivate them in the discharge of their duties.
Deputy Inspector General of Police-In-Charge of Traffic Management and Road Safety, Sahr Senesie, said they have a duty to their citizens and the state. He admonished that they should not compromise their integrity which is key in upholding the fundamental principles in policing. He appealed that, “we should be our brothers’ keeper.”
The personnel expressed similar sentiments in showering praises at the SLRSA’s Deputy Executive Director and said that his leadership style is second to none since the establishment of the authority.
