Traffic And Indiscipline Management Agency Of Abia State (TIMAAS) says it has pardoned tricycle drivers, popularly called Keke NAPEP operators in Aba and Umuahia after various traffic-related offenses were established against them, ABN TV reports.
The General Manager of the agency, Comdr Bright Chinedu Ikeokwu made this known on Friday during a sensitization /advocacy program organized by the State Ministry Of Transport for Tricycle operators at BTC Aba.
He told the affected offenders to come forward to any of TIMAAS offices in Aba and Umuahia with relevant documents proving ownership to collect their tricycles.
The GM reiterated the willingness of TIMAAS to collaborate with Tricycle Unions and operators to ensure that the roads become safer by the eradication of traffic indiscipline.
Comdr Ikeokwu called for harmonization of the operations of tricycle operators in the state.
