It is high time that government makes it mandatory for all passengers service vehicles, lorries and haulage trucks to have speed limiter. This will prevent avoidable accidents that are due to over-speeding and negligence such as the bus accident that recently happened near Odzi River.
Drivers of public service vehicles must be allocated points which are deduct-able upon committing a traffic offence and once the driver has used up the points he should be suspended from driving the passengers service vehicle (PSV)
In addition drivers of PSVs must get regular-including snap check- breathalyser tests as well as medical examinations.
We are concerned that passengers are being driven by drunk or physically ill drivers. Putting a 100 or more lives in the hands of a drunk or physically ill driver is the kind of stuff that nightmares – that do become real- are made of.
Police must put in place speed traps and must be availed with breathalysers.
