TRANSPORT owners from northwest Guadalcanal are calling on authorities to clarify whether construction of road humps are legal.
They say along the road through Kakabona, west of Honiara, villagers are constructing road humps almost everywhere.
“We want authorities to explain whether this is legal or not,” one transport owner said.
“From what we understand, if you want to do this, you must get permission from road authorities first,” he added.
“This is public road and we were surprised to see people treating it as their own.”
The vehicle owner said the road humps are a threat to their vehicles.
TheMinistry of Infrastructure Development (MID) recently warned that digging of public road to create humps for the purpose of slowing down vehicles is illegal, as stipulated in the traffic laws.
Following many concern raised by the public following the practice, MID responded that this practice is illegal.
