The Road Transport and Safety Agency has announced that new sites for speed camera enforcement will be active effective Friday 2 November 2018.
The New Sites include Addis Ababa Road in Lusaka, Burma Road, Chilumbulu Road, Great North Road Between OYDC and Katuba Toll Plaza and Kafue Road between Lilayi Roundabout and Shimabala Toll Plaza
This follows trials that were conducted on these roads which indicate that more than 51 percent of motorists are driving above the legal speed limits.
In a statement issued by the RTSA Public Relations Unit, motorists have been advised that all matters relating to speed signage on these roads are being addressed adding that the camera enforcement will only be done on roads that have visible speed signs.
The Agency reiterated that the deployment of speed cameras is a nation-wide program which will be focused on most accident-prone areas.
Meanwhile, the Agency has disclosed that compliance has increased to as high as 99 percent on roads monitored by cameras since commencement on July 11, 2018.
It said 150 cameras will be deployed across the country in the coming months to reduce the carnage on roads caused by excessive speed and reckless driving.
