Two G-vehicles have been apprehended in a recent joint search exercise conducted by the Vanuatu Police Force (VPF) Traffic Unit in Port Vila and the Public Service Commission (PSC).
One of the vehicles belongs to the Department of External Trades.
The driver of G549 was driving after working hours without proper documentation, said Sergeant Edward Kalura from the Police Traffic Unit. The other vehicle is G1303.
“The abuse of the two G-vehicles will be dealt with according to section 52 of the Road Traffic (Control) Act. A person who drives any G-vehicles without authorization from the PSC shall be punished by a fine not exceeding Vt10,000,” he said.
“The search is an ongoing activity between the Police Traffic Unit and PSC to monitor misuse and negligence of government-owned vehicles.”
Sergeant Kalura added the recent search is the first one this year and covered major kava bars in Port Vila.
