Police is set to mount roadblocks in all major roads ahead of the independence and Easter holidays in a bid to avert road accidents, Police Commissioner General Godwin Matanga has said.
Addressing police officers at the Briefing and Debriefing of the Darfur contingent Matanga said motorists and pedestrians should exercise caution.
“I wish to say in a few days’ time we shall be celebrating our nation’s independence as well as Easter. To this end, the Zimbabwe Republic Police together with other stakeholders such as the Vehicle Inspection Department and Zimbabwe Traffic Safety Council shall be highly visible on all major roads enforcing traffic rules and regulations,“ he said.
He said the nation should join hands in putting an end to road carnage.
“It is important that I take this opportunity on behalf of the Zimbabwe Republic Police to urge the nation especially all motorists and pedestrians to exercise extreme caution on the roads.
“Let us all join hands in putting an end to carnage on our roads,” he said.
Matanga said people should not drink and drive.
“Always remember not to drink and drive. We are also saying no to speeding,” he said.
This comes after 10 people were killed in a road traffic accident yesterday.
