The Traffic police started today all over Juba a mega-operation to remove tinting materials from the glasses of cars in a drive to boost security. Juba Traffic Police Director Colonel Machar Gai Mach told CRN that the removal of tinting plastics from car windows aims at allowing security personnel to see clearly the people driving around Juba. He said there are many security problems in Juba. The officer added that the Traffic Police fears that bad things happening in other countries may be brought to Juba and other parts of the country. Mr Gai said the exercise will continue after the celebration of Independence Day. He added that many cars come tinted from the factory and it is very difficult to remove the material. Mr Gai said the Traffic Police will present a report about tinted cars so that the Government can give right directives how to solve the problem. He called on the owners of tinted cars not to drive them until a clear law is enacted. President Salva Kiir Mayardit last year ordered the removal of tinted material from all cars except the ministers' vehicles. The Council of Ministers decided to enact the ban last month.
