ORIGINAL POST (28/10): BRACE YOURSELVES FOR MORE SPEED TRAP CAMERAS AND WHEN GUILTY PAY, SAYS RTSA BOSS

Lusaka – 28th October 2018, The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has charged that the deployment of speed cameras on selected roads will enhance sustainable road transport and improve the road safety profile of Zambia.

 

 

Press here to read the full article...

Speaking at a public discussion on the implementation of speed cameras, yesterday in Lusaka, RTSA Chief Executive Officer Mr. Zindaba Soko, stated that the country is ready to implement latest Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) as a means of enhancing sustainable road transport and reduce the number of road traffic crashes in the country.

Mr. Soko stated that the deployment of speed cameras on selected roads has brought about sanity and increased the compliance levels to road traffic rules and regulations among motorists.

He said as part of its on-going innovations, the Agency will deploy more cameras to other parts of the country especially the highways where accidents are so prominent.

He however, stated that the deployment of more cameras will only be conducted on roads that have proper road signage.

He adds that the Agency conducts roads safety audits to ensure roads have the correct and approved road furniture with adequate safety designs.

“Zambia is very ready for speed camera’s and they have created no room for corruption or negotiations for offenders. We also want to eliminate exessive speed on the Zambian roads which is among the leading causes of road injuries and fatalities in Zambia”, he said.

Mr. Soko revealed that the Agency may consider revising speed limits on selected roads only when it is satisfied that the compliance levels have improved and the designs of the roads are more appropriate.

ORIGINAL POST (08/10): Zambia Police advises on Lusambo’s Citizen arrest call on illegal road blocks officers

The Zambia Police Service has advised Members of the Public to verify with authorities on the legality of checkpoints and roadblocks before effecting citizen arrests on Police officers suspected to have mounted an illegal checkpoint as directed by Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo yesterday.

Press here to read the full article...

At a media briefing, Mr. Lusambo told Lusaka residents to effect Citizen arrest on Police Officers who mount illegal roadblocks saying Lusaka only has three Check Points, one along Mumbwa road, one along the Kafue road in Chilanga and one along the Great East road after the Airport roundabout.

He said the unnecessary road blocks in the Province were contributing to congestion on the roads.

Here is a full statement by the Police

LUSAKA, 07 TH OCTOBER, 2018 – The Zambia Police wishes to state that in the recent past, a Ministerial Statement was presented in Parliament by the Minister of Home Affairs, in which he announced the reduction of roadblocks countrywide.

We also wish to clarify that the roadblocks that were referred to in the Ministerial Statement were Permanent Security road blocks and these are roadblocks which operate on a 24 00 hours basis mainly for security reasons such as search for wanted and trafficked persons, stolen property and address many other security concerns.

Other than these permanent roadblocks there are also snap check points which are random in nature and are mounted by traffic officers at different points in enforcing the Road Traffic Act hence ensuring that there is sanity on the roads.

The snap checks are usually mounted between 09 00 hours and 16 00 hours. Before 09 00 hours and after 17 00 hours, traffic officers are usually involved in traffic management.
The permanent roadblocks were indeed reduced on the basis that they were counterproductive and were an inconvenience to the travelling public.

However, on snap checks which are random checkpoints, a directive was given by the Minister of Home Affairs that they should be well coordinated by Police Commissioners of Provinces to avoid being an inconvenience to the travelling public.

Section 21 of the Zambia Police Act gives mandate to the Zambia Police to regulate and control traffic as well as keep and maintain order on public roads.

We therefore wish to advise members of the public to understand the distinction between Permanent Security Roadblocks and Snap Traffic checks and should always verify with authorities on the legality of checkpoints and roadblocks before effecting citizens arrests on officers suspected to have mounted an illegal checkpoint.

UPDATE (26/08): RTSA ADDRESSING ALL ISSUES ASSOCIATTED WITH IMPLEMENTATION OF ROAD SIDE SPEED CAMERAS

LUSAKA, 26th August 2018 – After a detailed investigation, the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has identified a shortfall in the speed signage on the Kenneth Kaunda Airport Road.

As from Friday 24 August 2018, new speed signs have sinc been posted on the Airport Road.

We therefore,  caution all motorists to respect these speed limits as the route is equally used by pedestrians and cyclists and that maximum caution should be exercised by motorist when using public roads.

In view of the foregoing, motorists who have received and paid fines that were issued in respect to the Airport Road only, the RTSA will waive the fines that were issued for exceeding the speed limit on this road. These individuals will be contacted directly by the RTSA to rectify the matter.

ORIGINAL POST (06/10): NO UNNECESSARY ROADBLOCKS IN LUSAKA

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo says government will not allow unnecessary roadblocks.

Mr. Lusambo says there are only three recognized road blocks in Lusaka, located at the Kafue bridge, Lusaka west and in Chongwe.

He says any other road block is not recognized by law and should be abolished with immediate effect.

Mr. Lusambo says there is need for sanity on the road and that people should drive peacefully in the city.

Addressing the media in Lusaka today, Mr. Lusambo said his office together with the ministry of home affairs will next week act to curb lawlessness on the roads.

Meanwhile Mr. Lusambo has emphasized the need for Zambians to be Patriotic and speak good of the country.

He said the country cannot attain meaningful development if it’s people cannot talk good of it to outsiders.

UPDATE POST (25/08):

Chief Government Spokesperson, Dora Siliya has said that the waiver on the speed fines will only apply to motorists that were captured on Airport road in Lusaka because the road had no signage.

Ms Siliya said that RTSA is expected to refund the Motorists that were captured by the speed camera on Airport road.

Press here to read the full article...

Ms Siliya who is Information Minister told Journalists at a media briefing that Government is in full support of the roll out of the intelligent traffic management system.

The Minister says RTSA has indicated that they have also started putting signage on Airport road.

She however said that the roll out of the Intelligent Traffic Management System is part of the UN Decade of Action to reduce road fatalities by half by 2020.

Earlier in the week Government directed the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to waive traffic fines slapped on motorists captured on the speed cameras placed on roads without proper speed signage and refund those who already paid.

Minister of Transport and Communication, Brian Mushimba said in an interview that he had engaged RTSA following a public outcry on the traffic fines that had been slapped on speeding motorists captured on roads without proper signage.

Mr Mushimba said that it was unfair for the RTSA to charge motorists for speeding offences when the speed limits were not clear.

The minister revealed that he had instructed the RTSA to waive fines on motorists who were captured on roads without proper signage and refund those who had already cleared their fines.

“In as much as we fully support initiatives by RTSA to ensure road safety, it is just not fair that they should charge motorists even on roads where signage is not clear. For example, Airport Road has no proper signage, so how do you fine motorists on such a road?” he questioned.

Mr Mushimba reiterated that the government was concerned about the increase in traffic accidents but that the Road Safety Management System should be rolled out fairly.

And Commuters Rights Association of Zambia (CRAZ) president, Aaron Kamuti advised the RTSA to separate its function of saving lives from its endeavours to increase its revenue base. Mr Kamuti said that RTSA should differentiate its life saving programmes from its revenue collection mandate.

He expressed concern that the money RTSA had raised from the road safety law enforcement using road side cameras within a short period of time was too alarming.

Mr Kamuti pointed out that RTSA was supposed to bank about K13.5 million from the 45, 000 traffic violations recorded in the first three weeks of implementing the road side camera programme.

He reiterated that the road safety management system should not be aimed at milking motorists of their hard earned money but to reduce traffic accidents and save lives.

Mr Kamuti commended Mr Mushimba for listening to the cries of motorists by ensuring that questionable fines were done away with.

UPDATE (23/08): Rollout of Speed Cameras continues across Lusaka

Speed cameras are reportedly continuing to be deployed across the city, as new installation locations have been identified, including on Leopards Hill Road, New Kasama. The installation point is indicated as being immediately after the high school entrance of the American International School of Lusaka (AISL) and opposite Leopards Hill Business Park, by the school’s low speed zone.

The maximum speed limit appears to be 40km/h in the zone the camera monitors.

UPDATE (21/08): RTSA will not waiver traffic fines

The Road Transport and Safety Agency has announced that it will not waiver traffic fines slapped on motorists captured on the speed cameras.

RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko said the fines must be paid within 30 days.

He said the standard being used is the SADC standard and aligned to the National Traffic Signing approved guidelines.

Mr. Soko also announced the agency will re-register all vehicles in accordance with the road traffic act which demands that vehicles are re-registered every 10 years.

MEDIA BRIEFING ON THE IMPLEMENTATION STATUS OF THE ROAD MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

20TH AUGUST, 2018

ROAD TRANSPORT AND SAFETY AGENCY (RTSA) CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, MR. ZINDABA SOKO

On 23rd August 2017, the Government of the Republic of Zambia through the Road Traffic and Safety Agency (RTSA) signed a 17 year Public Private Partnership Concession Agreement with Intelligent Mobility Solutions (IMS) for the design, installation and operation of systems and solutions for vehicle inspection, vehicle registration, road safety law enforcement and traffic surveillance, nationwide.

The move was to address the problems associated with the increase in the vehicle population which resulted into increased road accidents on many of our roads in Zambia.

The number of vehicles on Zambia’s roads increased by 280% to 700,000 in the ten years to 2016 and road fatalities increased from 10 per hundred thousand inhabitants to 13.8 per hundred thousand in the same period. In 2016 alone, 2,206 people died in traffic related accidents. Therefore, it is the aim of the Zambian Government, through its agency the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to significantly increase road safety and traffic management. In February 2018, Intelligent Mobility Solutions (IMS) and RTSA unveiled the Road Safety Management System with the goal of saving lives on our roads.

The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) today Monday 20th August 2018 commencedthe enhancement of the existing signage of speed zones with additions of the speed camera sign of camera speed signs on public roads.

While this action is one of the first tangible elements of the Road Safety Management System launched on 7th February, 2018 RTSA recognize that photo or video-based enforcement will have limited effect pending the implementation of a secure number plate vehicle identification system.

The Road Transport and Safety Agency, says, “The cameras detect various road infringements including speeding. Camera technicians have been trained on the latest technology using a live camera, which also has the capability to conduct night operations.”

The placing of such Signage has been done with the authority of the Road Development Agency (RDA) who are the mandated Agency in this area. The standard being used is the SADC standard and aligned to our National Traffic Signing approved guidelines. The RTSA has been receiving concerns from various members of the public:

1. Complaints of no real time

2. On the infringement notices by sms

Speed alignment and speed zone upgrades among others.

4. Visibility of signage

5. Messages

I wish to inform the general public and the concerned motorists that we have a huge problem of crashes coupled with the fatalities and serious injuries as a result of excessive speed. As RTSA we have embarked on a process of managing various bad driver attitude by the use of ICTs and the difference we will have is that this will be electronically monitored. This eliminates the checkpoints undertaken for speed management purposes.

The particular roll-out began with four cameras and now at 6 and from the assessments so far our abrogations of the law are being done with impunity.

I would like to give an example of a stop sign on a particular road that road sign is an enforceable warning if not obeyed and fines are applicable to such an abrogation. As motorists we go into driver training before we can drive and this is part of the 10 basic rules that we learn to obey traffic signs. Hence the concern of no information of a traffic warning of a camera is noted and is being currently addressed considering that in the next few weeks more speed enforcement equipment shall be rolled-out within the next few weekswith aligned and upgraded speeds for only selected roads.

The way the other road furniture in terms of signage like give-way, curve ahead, pedestrian crossing and so on is complied to. This new phenomenon must be adhered to as the law demands for the protection and saving lives of all road users.

The scenario now is that motorists want to adhere to the laws in place only when the enforcers are in view. This is a bad attitude and our minds need to adapt to the attitude of self compliance as opposed to forced compliance. As RTSA our interest is to save lives and the use of ICTs is the way to go as a country.

The placement of aligned signage including camera speed signs shall later be extended to other major highways before the implementation of the road side speed cameras enforcement is rolled out to other parts of the country.

As you are aware the issue of excessive speed is one of the top five causes of road traffic crashes.This move is part of the best practices and standards in ensuring that motorists drive at appropriate speed and changing the bad driver behaviour of excessive speed being exhibited on the Zambian roads.

However, The Road Traffic (Speed Limits) Regulation – Statutory Instrument No.90 of 2016 states that the prescribed speeds are as follows:

1. Within the area of a Local Authority – 40 KM per Hour;
2. Built up area outside the Local Authority -60KM per Hour; and
3. In any other part of Zambia (Trunk Roads) 100 and 120 respectively

On the other hand, modalities are being put in place to address concerns associated with the enforcement of road side speed camera management which has to do with signage in collaboration with RDA enhancement that has to be adhered to.

The rate at which lives are being lost, it is therefore inevitable that we halt the crashes hence us going in this direction.

We want to assure the public that the implementation of the project will be perfected to the desired direction soonconsidering that our paramount realisation from this project is to save lives.

As you may be aware, the current RTSA vehicle database has a population of 765,000. However, only fifty per cent of these vehicles appear to be active and hence re-registration exercise that the Agency is currently working on the process of implementation

The re-registration of Motor Vehicles exercise countrywide is in accordance with the provisions of the Road Traffic Act No. 11 of 2002, which demands that a re-registration must be undertaken every 10 years.

Therefore, vehicle owners will be required to re-register their motor vehicles and trailers once the Agency announce the commencement date of this exercise.

The following are the benefits of the re-registration of motor vehicle and trailers:

• Improved security for vehicles; • No check points as all motor vehicles will be electronically screened;
• Electronic payment of fines, road tax and other services;
• Improved service delivery at tolling points for quick passage;
•Improved compliance for motor vehicle fitness and licensing; •Improved and enhanced monitoring of speed for all vehicles; and
• Easy correction and updating vehicle details.

The re-registration of motor vehicle and trailers will enhance electronic motor vehicle registration with secure number plates and Radio Frequency Identifier (RFID) and it will be done at reduced fee.

The issue of motorists’ complaints that they don’t own a particular are addressed by the act as follows:

Section 13 of the Road Traffic Act No. 11 of 2002 Seller must inform the licensing officer of the District in which the motor vehicle or trailer is registered in writing of the name and address of the new owner and the date of change of ownership of the vehicle.

Within 14 days of sale Section 13(5)

Failure to notify the licensing officer in writing of change of ownership of motor vehicle renders the vehicle impoundable. The Seller is also liable for an offence which is punishable by a fine of 1000 penalty units equivalent to K300.

Buyer must within 14 days of sale deliver the registration document to the licensing officer who shall register new owner.

It should be noted that while the law requires a buyer to deliver the registration document to the licensing officer within 14 days of buying the vehicle in line with Section 13(1) (b), it does not make it an offence to fail to deliver the document.

This requires a person who buys a vehicle within Zambia to present the vehicle together with the letter of sale, change of ownership certificate and registration document at Zambia Police Headquarters for Interpol clearance within 30 days of buying the vehicle.

Failure to present the vehicle for Interpol Clearance renders the buyer liable for an offence which is punishable by a fine not exceeding 200,000 penalty units or Kwacha equivalent of K60,000 Within 30 days of buying vehicle.

Going forward as RTSA we shall increase our sensitization levels on the next speed management areas of camera roll-out.

In conclusion, let me state that there shall be no waiver on the fines that were sent to offending motorists as pre notices about this project was communicated to members of the public .

Due to the foregoing, we wish to indicate that the period of payment of fines will be within 30 days from the date of infringement and note that all the payment platforms are secure.

We therefore, advise all motorists to observe appropriate speed limits, drive with caution and help reduce the numbers of road traffic accidents in Zambia.

I thank you.

UPDATE (18/08): RTSA cameras capture 45,000

OVER 45,000 motorists in Lusaka have in the last one month been caught over-speeding on recently-installed cameras.
The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) will raise K13.5 million from the offenders paying K300 for each breeach.
The speed cameras are installed in various parts of the city.
RTSA head of public relations Frederick Mubanga said in an interview yesterday that the exercise is yielding fruits.

ORIGINAL POST (11/08):

RTSA says it will commence the enforcement of Safety Laws from today, Wednesday 11th July 2018 as part of the Road Safety Management System.

In a statement, RTSA Head of Public Relations Frederick Mubanga said the programme will include the introduction of roadside cameras to monitor and detect traffic offences.

He said offending motorists should expect to be stopped and issued with an automated offence report on the spot or receive electronic communication on the following day, notifying them of the offence.

“The technology inherent in the cameras and the system means that all infringements are automatically digitally recorded, both on site and at RTSA. Likewise, the iTicket system creates a permanent notice to be utilized in the prosecution of offenders,” Mubanga said.

Mubanga said cameras will be deployed in Kafue Road, Great East Road, Airport Road, and Mumbwa Road.

He said the cameras will detect various road infringements including speeding.
