SLRSA, OTHERS DISCUSS RIGHT HAND DRIVE CONVERSION – Newswatch Newspaper

The Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority (SLRSA) on Wednesday 26th August, 2015 held discussions with the Sierra Leone Motor Vehicle Maintenance Association (SLMVMA), Spare Part Dealers and Sierra Leone Standards Bureau among other stakeholders at the Authority’s headquarters hall, Kissy Road, Freetown on the ban on right-hand drive vehicles.

 

SLRSA Human Resource Director, Joseph Dauda, who chaired the ceremony, said that the ban on right-hand drive vehicles was postponed due to the Ebola outbreak and the unavailability of parts to change right-hand drives to left.

 

For his part Reverend Michael Samura, SLRSA Board Chairman, said that the change from right-hand drive is going to be effected so that the country would have a single system with others, and in the process enhance road safety which should be everybody’s concern.

 

Chairman Samura called on SLMVMA and Spare Part Dealers among other stakeholders, to join the Authority to prohibit the use of right hand vehicles for road safety and a   better Sierra Leone, and to   totally do away with such vehicles.
