The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) says it would coordinate with the police and devise new strategies in order to impound vehicles which are not in road worthy conditions.
RTSA spokesperson, Mukela Mangolwa, said people driving trucks which are not road worthy have been avoiding police road blocks hence the decision by RTSA and the police to carry out road patrols at night.
Mr. Mangolwa told ZANIS that the new road patrolling methods would enable the agency and the police spot vehicles which are dangerous on the roads.
He said most truck drivers, who carry sand and stones, do not have licenses while some of their trucks were not even registered with RTSA. as it only registers vehicles which are fit to be on the roads.
He added that vehicles which are not in a good road condition were the cause of most road traffic accidents which otherwise could be avoided.
Mr. Mangolwa has since called on the general public to corporate with RTSA by reporting defective vehicles.
