A driver who narrated his encounter lamented, “Before the passengers board the vehicle we enquire and some tell us it is in their bags. When the Police stop us they make everyone in the vehicle alight when one person isn’t wearing the mask even though the driver and mate have theirs on. It is unfair to the driver and mate. When they stop us just the person who isn’t wearing it should be made to alight.”

Another, a mate, bemoaned the fine they are made to pay by the Police when the flout the regulation.
