I WISH to comment on the PMV operations in Port Moresby.
The city is going through a rapid growth in infrastructure development.
Since we are hosting the Apec 21 member economies, can the National Road Traffic Authority, through its enforcement unit, apply hefty fines on PMVs that breach traffic regulations?
It is common to see passengers hanging from the side of a moving vehicle.
With much being said about the Apec preparation, I do not see why we are not monitoring our PMV system.
We are telling the international community and observers that we have a bad transport system in place in our region. A classic example is Kokopo, in East New Britain, where discipline is instilled.
You do not see people hanging from moving vehicles there.
