Police Impound 30 Vehicles Fitted With Bar Lights
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) in Mashonaland East province has impounded 30 vehicles in an ongoing operation that is targeting vehicles fitted with bar lights.
Mashonaland East police provincial spokesperson Inspector Simon Chazovachiyi said the operation is aimed at ending accidents associated with the use of such lights which are known for being too bright to the extent of blinding motorists coming from the opposite direction.
Inspector Chazovachiyi said it was unlawful to insert bar lights on vehicles and any motorists found with them would be arrested. He added:
Bar lights are illegal, those who put them contravene Section 66 of Statutory Instrument 129 of 2015 which states that “no person shall drive a vehicle on any road in Zimbabwe which is fitted or affixed with anything that may cause danger to anyone in the vehicle or outside the vehicle.
Zimbabwe has been recording many road accidents attributed to human error, weather, poor road conditions and mechanical fault.
