The Ministry of Transport on Monday expressed
regret at road traffic crashes resulting in several deaths and injuries over
the weekend in parts of the country.
The Ministry has therefore, instituted a full-scale investigation to ascertain the causes of the crashes with the view to improving the existing
road safety strategy and reducing the occurrence of such carnage on the roads.
A release signed by Mr. Mike Hammah, Minister of Transport, said it shared in the sorrow and sentiments expressed by the general public on the disturbing phenomenon, and advised road users that road safety was a shared responsibility and expected that passengers took full interest in their safety by demanding desirable road safety practices from drivers.
The Ministry assured road users that it was not oblivious of the challenges and was committed to empowering the National Road Safety Commission as the lead agency to deliver on its mandate of promoting best practices and influencing the change in attitude that was required to making roads safer.
