Police in Lunzu yesterday embarked on a campaign aimed at civilizing motorcyclists on how best they can be operating on the road.
Speaking to our reporter, Regional Traffic Inspector for Chichiri Ellard Chigwembere said they thought it wise to conduct the campaign as they noted with great concern the rise in number of accidents involving motorcyclists that have been occurring from January to July this year.
“We noted with great concern the rise in number of accidents that have been occurring from Kameza to Zalewa. There have been too many accidents from January to July this year.” He said
Chigwembere advised motorcyclists among other measures to observe road signs as most motorcyclists do not observe road signs hence the rise in number of accidents. He also advised them to wear helmet whenever operating.
“We strongly advise them to observe road signs as most of them are not trained, wear helmets as they help prevent them from sustaining serious injuries in case of accident.” Said Chigwembere.
Chigwembere also advised the motorcyclists to carry a maximum of one person failing which laws will be enforced on them. He advised motorcyclists in the Country to get properly trained and have licence.
Chigwembere warned motorcyclists that soon Police will be arresting those to be operating without licences, non-registered motorcycles and those whose motorcycles are not insured.
