Buses, trucks should have speed gov­er­nors

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Front Page -

ED­I­TOR — Just a sug­ges­tion to the Min­is­ter of Trans­port to con­sider a law that en­forces all pub­lic and heavy trucks to have speed gov­er­nors and track­ers in­stalled on such ve­hi­cles and with speed limit set at 80km/hr.

The tracker should tell the owner of such a ve­hi­cle that his driver was speed­ing or not so he/she can take ac­tion against the driver.

A good ex­am­ple is the black Zam­bian trucks (name sup­plied) that carry cop­per, and have track­ers and but have speed gov­er­nors.

The buses on the Vic­to­ria Falls road are speed­ing, in­clud­ing the big trucks car­ry­ing coal, and very soon we will have a very se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent.

The road is very bad but you still see these buses and trucks speed­ing, it is very scary in­deed.

The other sug­ges­tion maybe is that a po­lice­men in civil­ian cloth­ing boards one of the buses and mon­i­tors their speeds, once a driver is ar­rested then they will know that Govern­ment is very se­ri­ous and that they could be a po­lice­man in the bus. Frank Walker
