She says police visibility has been increased in most hotspots.

“There is a number of search and seizure operations that have been started and are continuing by the law enforcement agencies. This campaign is also aimed at ensuring that we rid our communities off illegal firearms that would have committed crime in the past. We are also working with the communities to the ensure the safety of everyone.”

Meanwhile, some motorists and passengers believe that cooperation and adhering to the traffic rules are key in reducing road carnages.
