This serves to inform you that the Road Transport and Safety Agency and the Zambia Police in conjunction with the Lusaka City Council has begun to prosecute persons who violate road rules at the Civic Center Subordinate Court which will hear all matters relating to road violations on a fast track basis.
As of last week, no payments will be done at RTSA for any breach. An offender will have to go through the Court process from the most trivial matters such as failure to obey road signs, over speeding, driving without a license, not wearing a seat belt to the grave offenses.
The prosecutions will initially apply to Lusaka and thereafter occurring countrywide those convicted of drunken driving will be sentenced to weekend imprisonment.
Weekend imprisonment is where\ a convict is required to surrender oneself to prison at 18:30 hrs. Each Friday and released on Sunday at 1830hrs until the full prison sentence is served.
Kindly ensure that all employees driving company vehicles within Lusaka are made aware of this new development to avoid unnecessary inconvenience and waste of time through Court attendances.
