Jayen Chellum for cancellation tickets for speedometers lack
13 February 2011
Now a lot of motorcycles and scooters are not equipped with a speedometer, but the police take in contravention of the culprits. "Because of this shortage on the market, it should cancel these tickets", said Jayen Chellum, chief of ACIM (Association des Consommateurs de l'île Maurice).
"All tickets taken should be rescinded. Before taking the decision to mandate these counters, it was necessary to make a concerted effort with the various stakeholders, including importers. A committee is expected to sections 21 (1) and (2) of the Road Traffic Act to be temporarily suspended. "
"The lack of spare parts for motorbikes like Motobecane, the mini Honda, Daelim or Panther is because it has been many years since we do is more important," stated one dealer. These owners can be reassured because electronic speedometers are coming soon. The problem is they do not support the specifications of the law. "We must have the approval of the department before acting," said an officer.
NTA confirms that it will move forward with electronic meters because the body receives too many complaints.
