The inspector of traffic police of Yei River County of Central Equatoria State Col. Ruben Manyok Aguer says there are no cases of accidents reported in Yei town.

Ruben mentioned that following the 11th Anniversary of South Sudan’s independence in the year 2022 till now there are no cases documented when the Governor Arrived to Yei

“The time I came from Juba I found that there are no cases of accident since the time governor of Central Equatoria state arrived to Yei for the 11th anniversary independence festivity and I thank all the forces for giving a maximum control during the day of the independence up to now because the drivers and motorcycle riders were driving very carefully,” he said

He advised the drivers and Motorcycle riders to get ridding licenses from the traffic police office since the licenses will only belong to the owner who registered.

“Drivers and riders should have licenses because the license is not for the owner of the vehicle and the motorcycle owner and you can work in each department so long as you have the riding and driving licenses,” he stated

The traffic police inspector also appreciated the people of Yei River County for the great cooperation among themselves.

“I also appreciate the cooperation of the public or the people of the county for living together with a common understanding, you continue with the same spirit despite our family problems and if there is family issue with your brothers and sisters or wife and husband you need to sit down and solve the issue,” he stressed.

He also advised motorists and drivers to stay away from alcohol as they look into the current economic crisis to avoid accidents on road and avoid family break out, and he cautioned people against driving and riding under the influence of alcohol.

The traffic police inspector added that drivers and motorcycle riders should reduce from high speed rather they should use the normal speed given by the traffic laws of South Sudan, he pointed that “if you commit an offence of knocking someone on high speed you will face the law it’s better to cooperate with traffic laws and abide by the laws” he noted.
