Minister of Transport and communications Brian Mushimba has directed the Road Transport and Safety Agency-RTSA – to remove all vehicles that are not road worthy from the roads.
Mr. Mushimba issued the directive when he conducted a compliance operation at Ten Pyke Community Check point in Kafue.
He also said there is need for RTSA to re-visit the laws on drunk driving and stiffen penalties that will take away some erring driver’s privileges.
The Minister said there is also need to exhaust all necessary procedures in repealing the laws keeping in mind the legal implications to ending drunk-driving among Road users.
And RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko said the Agency wants to ensure Zero tolerance to drunk driving.
Zambia Police and RATSA have been implementing Operation Compliance checks country wide since it was launched in Luanshya last week.
The move is aimed at increasing traffic Compliance levels among road users after the Agency noticed compliance levels among motorists had gone down last year.
