RTSA Calls Out Defaulting Motorists on Fines

The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has set a reminder for motorists that received infringement notices for settlement of fines within stipulated times.

RTSA says that failure to settle the fines would force them to serve summons for the motorists to appear before the fast track court.

“The  Agency wishes     to      remind all   motorists    and    fleet   owners who          received      the     infringement         notices        to      settle the fines within     the          stipulated    payment     period,” reads a statement from RTSA.

“This is in   accordance  with   Section 148 (4) (b)         as      read   with section 225   of          the     Road TrafficAct   No.    11      of      2002. All vehicle owners with overdue          payments    should         expect         the commencement        of      prosecution          which will involve summons    to appear before   the     fast    track  court,” stated the RTSA media department.

“Vehicle      will    be      blocked       on      e-ZamTIS.   This   means         that both          vehicle        inspection   and    vehicle        licensing will        not be         done”.

The statement further reads, “Vehicle         will    be placed    on      a        list     of          Vehicles      of      Special        Interest       and    subjected     to      random          roadside      inspections.”

RTSA had given an extension for payment of fines up to a month for offenders but the response has been lukewarm with the regulating body issuing another rallying call.

    That’s the reason why you don’t want to tell the motorists about the speed limits in areas where there are cameras so they are caught an aware so that you make profits in the name of fines. Sha!!

    Why complain when you were warned before the elections.So you suffer quietly you sufferers.Just pay after all you have more money in your pockets.Mind you if you pay in court it will be worse because Ts andCs shall apply. So I advise the offenders to get Kaloba and pay or else they will suffer the consequences.

    I received all my tickets a month later. Please work on delivering those tickets on time on your end. How do you keep all the tickets all this time. It’s almost as if you waited for people to offend enough so you make money. It’s just sad because that’s make for our safety not a money making venture. It feels like one. I comend you for the camera signs. It shows you listen. Those 40kms in kafue road mwebantu

    You people, let’s know that our country is trying to get money in different ways , number 1 by toll gates, cameras, road tax etc. Why are experiencing this in Zambia and how Mich do a lot of Zambians get in order to pay these things? And a lot of young people are getting ama license so that they become drivers for these investors but in our country they offer driving license to investors, at last no jobs for youths! What a government!

    Let’s just pay and drive safely next time. We committed offences and should own up. This happens everywhere in civilised countries. It has nothing to do with ECL.
