KAMPALA: The Traffic Directorate Police Spokesperson Faridah Nampiima has ordered drivers of lorries, buses and funeral service vans to remove extra lights within 24 hours.

According to Nampiima, extra lights hinder visibility at night, therefore ordered the drivers to remove them with immediate effect before their vehicles are impounded and handed over to the IOV.

‘’All those vehicles that belong to funeral services should remove the sirens and roof lights immediately because they are not catered for by law to have a right of way,’’ she ordered.

The traffic police mouthpiece says that they are working together with FFU and the Military Police to extend the operation against use of illegal sirens and flashlights to the highways.

‘’We have given one day to lorry and buses, and the vehicles that belong to funeral services to rectify their lights and sirens before their vehicles are impounded,’’ she said.
