“We’ve had a few try to go up the hill when they are not allowed to [between 6am-9am and 4pm-7pm]. Usually we warn them not to do it again. But we have fined a few of them B2,000 each for repeated attempts [to break the curfew].

“The problem now is old trucks and buses that go up the hill, some from other provinces, that break down and cause traffic jams.

“We have called the truck and bus owners for a meeting to try to solve this problem, such as trying to persuade them to buy new vehicles or at least to maintain and upgrade the old ones.”
