Government has announced that no public service vehicle whether passenger or goods, will be allowed to operate between 21 and 05:00hrs effective 27th November 2016.
Transport and communications Minister Brian Mushimba announced this during a news briefing in Lusaka this afternoon.
Mr Mushimba said this follows the increase in PSV accidents, with 55% accidents happening at night and 45% during the day.
He said road users have therefore been encouraged to obtain a copy of the Statutory Instrument (SI) number 76 of 2016.
Mr. Mushimba also urged the private sector to invest in truck parking infrastructure and overnight bus stops with internationally acceptable standards.
