Do the new penalties for traffic violations have the approval of the South Sudanese parliament?
South Sudan’s Directorate of National Traffic has announced new penalties for traffic violations. For 15 different violations, including reckless driving, driving a numberless vehicle, disobedience of instructions, and inappropriate language, the penalties range from 2,000 to 50,000 SSP.
The directives were issued by Assistant Inspector General for Traffic, Lt. Gen. Akok Noon Akok.
South Sudan has a parliament, isn’t any tax to be imposed on the citizens that needs to first go to the parliament for deliberation? Then such can now be approved by the President of the Republic.
