Stop Using Sirens – Jubilee House Warns Ministers, MPs, MMDCEs

The Jubilee House has reiterated the ban on what it calls the abuse of sirens and bells by some ministers, members of parliament, and Chief Executives of government organizations.

The directive comes after an earlier order in December 2017 with the heading ‘Abuse of the use of sirens by ministers and other government officials,’ stressing that it was still in force.

The letter indicated that per Regulation 74 (3) of L.1 2180, the specified vehicles that a siren or bell may be fitted as a warning appliance include; a government vehicle used for official purposes by the Head of State, a police vehicle, and a motor vehicle used by the Fire Service.

Others are; a motor vehicle used as an ambulance by a hospital or clinic, a motor vehicle used by other recognized Government security agencies, and a bullion vehicle registered by the Licensing Authority.

The directive insists that “any vehicle outside the above list or categories with a siren or bell is thus in contravention of the Law and the operator is liable to prosecution.”

“For the avoidance of doubt, the said ban on the use of sirens covers the following government appointees “Hon. Ministers and Deputy Ministers, Regional Ministers and Deputy Regional Ministers, Metropolitan, Municipal and Districthief Executives (MMDCEs), CEOs of Government Agencies and officials of the Presidency unless otherwise designated.”
