Northern Regional Director of the National Road Safety Authority, Alexander Ayata Atibu has admonished the police on the road not to be quick to process offending drivers for court.
According to him, although punitive actions are necessary, the police should hasten slowly, by first taking offending drivers through primary enforcement which is to educate or caution them, before the thinking about the secondary enforcement which is equally critical.
Mr. Ayata gave the admonition on the sideline of an education and sensitization programme his outfit is undertaking with the Catholic Church and other stakeholder ahead of the coming Christmas festivities.
The regional Road Safety Authority boss, praised collaborations between his office and the Catholic Church which has taken road safety to another level through encouragement of its members who ride motorbikes to use of crash helmets.
Mr. Ayata said although the Northern Regional figures of deaths and injuries from road crashes have slightly reduced especially the injuries, there was nothing to celebrate about since it involves human lives.
