  1. This Law is overdue. Those who breach traffic law are mostly the elites. I hope this new law will also curb the excesses of some of some of our men in uniform. For those living in villages with poor transport facilities(only tricycles and motorcycles) I hope a study of transport needs should be made to relax movement restrictions of these means of transport.
