Drivers caught speeding to be arrested & not fined this Easter holiday
National police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba told Sunday News that drivers who will be caught speeding during the Easter Holidays will not be ticketed on the spot but arrested, barred from continuing with their journeys and prosecuted. The maximum speed allowed on Zimbabwe’s roads is 120km/hour on highways for small cars while trucks and buses are allowed to go up to 80 km/hour.
The major cause of accidents on our roads is speeding. We are going to be serious about this and arrest speeding drivers. Yes, the law says we must give tickets, but we are going to be tough. We won’t let you drive if you are caught speeding. Let me issue a stern warning to all public service vehicle operators against overloading passengers. We will be tough and not allow you to proceed. All unroadworthy vehicles will be impounded. Drivers should make sure that their vehicles are not defective, before taking them onto our roads.
