Emmanuel Mwamba, the High Commissioner to South Africa, has delivered an 8-point proposal to curb road carnage in Zambia in which he urges the revocation of the night travel ban. Mwamba has effectively gone against government who recently imposed a night ban of public service vehicles in a bid to curb accidents on Zambian roads. The ban has yielded no success with road accidents continuing at nearly the same rate. This morning 10 people died after a Mazhandu Bus collided with a truck between Kabwe and Kapiri. BELOW IS EMMANUEL MWAMBA’S PROPOSAL We will need a comprehensive approach to end the carnage on the road and save lives. 1. Attend to the corrupt system from roadblocks that still let the not-so-roadworthy vehicles pass through to unlicensed drivers. 2. Introduce speed governors to regulate the speed of buses. 3. Ensure that authorities only allow suitable buses for Zambia. 4. Introduce and verify a training for public service vehicles. 5. Ensure that buses that travel beyond 300km to have two drivers. 6. Revoke the ban on night driving( as this makes drivers race to beat the deadline) 7. Invest in a dedicated highway Patrol system with dedicated allocated vehicles 8..build dual carriage ways on busy routes such as, Lusaka-Livingstone, Lusaka-Copperbelt, Kapiri-Nakonde routes. Add your thoughts too… The post Revoke Night Travel Ban – Emmanuel Mwamba appeared first on Zambia Reports.
