Police mount surprise crackdown in Meru

04 January 2013, 16:02 Kelvin Mureithi

Scores of road users were taken by surprise after police mounted a crackdown on all un road worthy vehicles in Imenti North district of the Meru County.

Imenti North OCPD Tom Odero who led the operation said they were targeting vehicles that were causing obstruction and carrying excess passengers, a practice that is rampant in the area.

Speaking to the Media in Meru on Thursday, Odero said they were also targeting taxi drivers who ferried passengers yet they had no yellow line on their vehicles.

He said many vehicle owners in Meru town had the habit of converting their personal vehicles into taxis especially during the morning, lunch and evening hours saying the practice is illegal.

He said several private vehicles had been inspected and their owners arrested, while public service vehicle drivers and touts found without uniforms were also arrested.

The Police boss said the crackdown was continuous adding that he would ensure that law is adhered to in a bid to rid the roads of unroadworthy vehicles.
