Motorists have been urged to exercise caution on the roads during the Heroes and Defence Forces Day holidays to avoid loss of lives due to road carnage.
Speaking on the sidelines of a roadshow campaign held in the capital Wednesday to raise awareness on the safe usage of roads, Director of the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ) Mr Obio Chinyere said his organisation in conjunction with the Zimbabwe Republic Police, will be out in full force to educate the public on the safe usage of roads to avoid loss of lives.
Mr Chinyere also said 20 campaign teams will be deployed countrywide.
“We are urging motorists to avoid speeding and overloading their vehicles and try to drive during the day,”said Mr Chinyere.
Mr Chinyere further urged drivers to avoid driving under the influence of alcohol imploring the public to report errant drivers to the police.
Road carnage has become a major cause for concern with several lives being lost on Zimbabwe’s roads daily, figures that usually increase during holiday periods.
