The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) is enforcing additional safety measures on the company’s portal to curb the illegal release of impounded vehicles.
According to the authority, Sacco/company administrators will now be required to submit a phone number where an SMS code will be sent to enable access to the website. NTSA sent a letter to Public Service Vehicles officials on December 10 saying this will be the third layer of security on the portal.
“A third level security measure has been implemented to increase the portal security. This will require the portal administrators to prove an SMS code before they log in to their portals,” the letter said.
NTSA has been dogged by accusations of the illegal release of motor vehicles, drivers, and conductors in their custody through the road service license portals.
The sacco and company administrators with access to the portal have been given till December 17 to submit their phone numbers to the authority.
