  1. Do vehicle inspections yearly and re examine drivers’ licences. Some of them might have licences for light vehicles but jumped on driving heavy duty vehicles without proper training.

  2. This was a bus service whose licence to operate was suspended but given back secretly by PF regime to continue collecting money for PF cadres. Zambian life is cheap to PF.

  3. Head-on Collision is a symptom of either lack of concentration and/or poor plus impaired judgment on the highway on the part of the driver(s).

    These sort of accidents can be further prevented via random fitness checks as buses leave intercity or any origination bus station by RTSA.

    Life is precious to continue being lost in such a preventable manner.

    Lets do more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Both drivers to blame, the impact shows both vehicles were over speeding. No attempt to avoid each other.
    Let all PSV drivers under go defensive driving.

    • How does one determine impact in a post event situation? I am thinking it’s more like the damage at the areas of impact.
