Zambia’s road safety agency on Monday announced an upward revision of speed limits on some roads following a public outcry.
The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has introduced speed limits and placed speed cameras on selected roads to catch drivers for over-speeding.
But motorists have complained that the speed limits were not fair, resulting in slowing down of traffic.
In a statement, the road safety agency said it has revised the speed limits on selected roads in Lusaka, the country’s capital, following concerns raised by the public.
The agency said the revision of the speed limits follows the conclusion of a review process of speed limits by a committee constituted to undertake the exercise.
“The process of installing the revised speed limits is underway. This exercise will be rolled out to all the highways and the rest of the provinces once resources are available,” the agency said. Enditem
