The Road Transport and Safety Agency RTSA has called on all motorists, especially Public Service Vehicle PSV drivers to be extra cautious on the road following the onset of the rain season.
RTSA has noted that with the onset of the rains, the roads have become slippery and hazardous in most parts of the country, thus posing a road hazard to the safety of the travelling public.
RTSA acting chief executive officer Gladwell Banda implored Motorists and Public Service Vehicle drivers in Particular to be extra cautious and regulate their speed to avoid road traffic crashes and guarantee the safety of the passengers.
“The Public is also urged to be proactive and report PSV drivers and other motorists driving at excessive speed to the RTSA, through the toll free line 983” Mr Banda said
He further reminded PSV operators that RTSA will continue monitoring PSV drivers through the newly introduced Global Positioning System GPS.
