ROAD TRANSPORT AND SAFETY AGENCY

PRESS STATEMENT

RTSA OFFICES TO REMAIN OPEN ON SATURDAY’S THROUGH OUT DECEMBER 2018

 

LUSAKA, 14th December, 2018 — In a bid to accommodate for the payment of Road Tax and other licencing needs for motorists and fleet owners, all Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) Stations across the country will remain open on Saturdays throughout the month of December 2018.

The Agency is providing the latter as a way of appreciating all RTSA stakeholders for the cooperation in enhancing service delivery and road safety profile for the country. The RTSA hopes that the public will utilise this opportunity  to comply with the law and pay for all road licences before the end of the year to avoid any inconveniences and avoid last minute payment of all Statutory obligations associated with the road transport sector.

Additionally, the RTSA through the Director, Mr. Zindaba Soko, and last week launched the annual National Festive Season Road Safety Campaign as means of intensifying traffic law enforcement and road safety publicity and education campaigns across the country.

As means of maintain  the positive outlook for the road safety prospects which has seen the country record a relative reduction of road accident fatalities for the period January to September, 2018 compared to the same period last year, the Agency will continue putting in place measure to reduce the numbers of road traffic and fatalities to minimal levels.

As we know, the festive season is characterised by increased volumes of road users and the RTSA has therefore, put in place measures that draw strength from a strong collection of law enforcement agencies such as the RTSA and the Zambia Police traffic section including all stakeholder parties to ensure adequate numbers of traffic officers on the roads, checking compliance and bringing to book those who endanger the lives of other road users with their recklessness and negligence.
