  1. Can someone explain to me why all accidents in Zambia are as a result of excessive speed . Speed can be a result of the driver loosing control after hitting a crazy pot hole

  2. Betters.
    I don’t think that it is as a reusult of excessive speed without quoting speed limit and at which the driver was driving when the accident occured. Here are some factors to take into consideration
    – Driving skills, many drivers learnt driving from friends/relatives
    – Drivers jump on driving vehicles that they are not qualified for
    – None wearing of seat belts.
    – no walking sides for people on foot ..biking areas on the road side
    – Change of traffic rules… giving priority to those on foot and cyclists when it comes to crossing on the zebra marke areas
    – monies collected from motorist SHOULD be used for repair of roads
    – Deffection all vehicles except new ones to be checked yearly

  3. Just put in place a government that will bring discipline on the road. We hear of excessive speeding on the roads every day and yet the ATM traps are always on these roads.
