He said most drivers seem to be oblivious of the responsibility to respect and give way to such formations something that must be recognised as a serious security breach. “It is also on us as the Botswana Police Service (BPS) to ensure that members of the public recognise the sensitivity of these convoys including emergency service vehicles,” Mantswe added.
