Dr Koroma said that “road accidents are violent sudden and traumatic events that cause lots of grief and distress, especially to the victims”, adding that since the advent of the new minister of internal affairs, Paolo Conteh, there had been certain stringent measures such as restricting  bike riders plying the Central Business District.

He noted that there had been considerable drop in the number of crash victims as well as ‘clique and gangs’ stabbing, which he said had reduced from 46 stab wounds in October to only 16 as at the last count.
