The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RATSA) has urged members of the public to be road conscious during and after the celebrations of the final Presidential petition results.
RTSA Head of Public Relations Fred Mubanga said the agency has noted with dismay that during national celebrations the country experiences loss of lives through road traffic accidents due to careless misconduct by the road users.
Speaking to ZANIS in Lusaka, Mr Mubanga revealed that his organisation has deployed more traffic officers on the roads to ensure that drivers observe traffic rules during and after results of the presidential petition and the inauguration ceremony.
He added that people should help RTSA by observing traffic rules and report all unlawful conducts on the road by calling its toll free line.
Mr Mubanga further revealed that the agency is working with the Zambia Police service to ensure that all law breakers on the road are arrested.
And Mr Mubanga has since appealed to all political party leaders to sensitize their members on the need to conduct peaceful and safe celebrations that do not endanger their lives.
