Are There Special Laws That Permits Security Agencies To Disobey Traffic Rules by Jeanjohnny(m): 7:47am On Jul 01, 2016
It is absurd, embarrassing and disgusting to see law
enforcement officers breaking the laws of the land
with reckless abandon and impunity.
Concerned citizens have expressed dissatisfaction on many occasions on the rate of obedience to traffic rules and regulations among motorists in Nigeria.
They allege that law enforcement agents who are
expected to uphold the rules and regulations also
encourage disobedience to the laws.
In Nigeria, law enforcement agents and aides of
political office holders seem to have a penchant for
breaking traffic rules.
Disobedience to traffic rules and regulations are
common among most security officers.
Security officers and political aides have no
respect for traffic rules as they think they are above
the law. So, they break the laws rather than being
obedient.
The rate of accidents caused by the convoy of
politicians and top government officials, security
agents, bank vehicles is on the rise.
A lot of road users and innocent Nigerians has
been killed by this act of recklessness and
lawlessness.
Rather than protect lives and property, they have
contributed to the death of some people; the
incoming government should ensure that sirens are
used by appropriate authorities,’’ he says.
If they can respect the laws elsewhere, why can't they respect laws in Nigeria? Who would then be the custodian of these laws and what examples are they setting for other road
users?
