The Managing Director, Kano State Road Traffic Agency (KAROTA), Alhaji Baffa Dan-Agundi, says the agency will soon commence the installation of security trackers on tricycles across the state.
Dan-Agundi stated this while briefing newsmen shortly after he appeared before the Kano State House of Assembly’s committee on works to defend the proposed 2020 budget for the agency.
According to him, the plan to install the device on all the tricycles operating in the state is to check criminal activities in the state and reduce their menace.
Dan-Agundi said the agency was also planning to introduce community service as punishment for road traffic offenders across the state.
He added that the law establishing the agency would soon be amended to include community service punishment.
The Managing Director explained that over one billion was proposed for the agency in the 2020 budget proposal recently presented before the State House of Assembly by Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
