The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has urged drivers to adhere to prescribed speed limits on all public roads following the implementation of automated speed enforcement.
RTSA Acting Head of Public Relations, Mukela Mangolwa, said the agency planned to ensure compliance with road safety regulations through the initiation of speed camera enforcement.
This is according to a statement issued in Lusaka on Friday.
Mukela informed drivers and the general public that the automated speed enforcement would employ both fixed and mobile speed cameras.
She said that the initiative would begin 10 days after the agency successfully concluded the pilot phase.
“As part of the Agency’s smart enforcement, the speed tickets issued by the RTSA will be delivered through Short Messaging Service (SMS) to the registered owners of the respective motor vehicles,” Mukela said.
Furthermore, Mukela appealed to all motorists to cooperate and partner with RTSA in promoting road safety.
She emphasized that it was essential for motorists to adhere to speed limits as it would ensure safety for all road users, especially with the forthcoming festive season.
