    That s very good. That”s how it is done in the

    That”s how it is done in England. The problem in Zambia is that there is no compterized list of motor vehicles. Now. I reall do not know how the RTSA officials will handle the matter.Computerize motorvehicles and their addresses in order to make it simple In uk if youcommit a trafic offence and you run away. if the camera catches you then you will be in trouhle. You have been caught. It is good tey are doing the right thing. Wait, whe I become president in Zambia I will do better. Thanks.
