One law for all

No driver is above the law and this also includes government vehicle drivers too, says Ministry of Finance acting senior accountant policy unit Makita Tagicakibau.

Speaking at the Transport Awareness Policy awareness workshop yesterday, Ms Tagicakibau said the former transport policy had been replaced with a new one.

She said the new policy was more comprehensive than the former in that it covered all issues relating to government vehicle drivers.

"We are aware of the concerns raised every now and then by the public regarding the conduct of government vehicle drivers," Ms Tagicakibau said.

"Thus, this workshop has been focused on keeping government vehicle drivers well up to date with the new policy.

"We are still working closely with the police in monitoring government vehicle movements after working hours."

Ms Tagicakibau said government vehicles still needed a signed approval from their authorities if they were to operate after working hours.
