Quad muscle for Erongo Police

Quad muscle for Erongo Police

THE Erongo Police’s manoeuvrability at the coast was increased when Trustco donated four quad bikes to them on Friday.

The four Honda 400CC quad bikes, valued at N$200 000, will be used to monitor off-road traffic between Walvis Bay and Swakopmund – both on the beach and in the dune belt. According to Jaco van Tonder, Trustco’s Erongo branch manager, the machines were donated to strengthen the Police’s ability to deal with crime over the holiday season.He said when the holiday is over, the bikes would be kept by Trustco until the next major holiday, when the bikes will be made available to the Police’s Traffic Division again.Nampol’s Traffic Control chief, Chief Inspector Clifton Jacobs, said the specific offences that will be addressed included riders not wearing helmets, unlicensed motorbikes and those riding outside the free zones.Reckless driving will also be addressed – especially on the beaches – and those crossing the main road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay to get to the adjacent dune belt.The Erongo Police’s acting chief, Chief Inspector Johannes Hamman, said there is a major influx of traffic during the holiday season and the donation by Trustco will help in controlling off-road traffic, which has also increased since the holiday begun.According to Jaco van Tonder, Trustco’s Erongo branch manager, the machines were donated to strengthen the Police’s ability to deal with crime over the holiday season.He said when the holiday is over, the bikes would be kept by Trustco until the next major holiday, when the bikes will be made available to the Police’s Traffic Division again.Nampol’s Traffic Control chief, Chief Inspector Clifton Jacobs, said the specific offences that will be addressed included riders not wearing helmets, unlicensed motorbikes and those riding outside the free zones.Reckless driving will also be addressed – especially on the beaches – and those crossing the main road between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay to get to the adjacent dune belt.The Erongo Police’s acting chief, Chief Inspector Johannes Hamman, said there is a major influx of traffic during the holiday season and the donation by Trustco will help in controlling off-road traffic, which has also increased since the holiday begun.
