THE Traf­fic Safety Coun­cil of Zim­babwe (TSCZ) will em­bark on road safety cam­paigns countrywide ahead of the fes­tive sea­son with the aim of re­duc­ing traf­fic ac­ci­dents and deaths.

In an in­ter­view, TSCZ in­for­ma­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion and tech­ni­cal man­ager Mr Ta­tenda Chin­oda said they would use so­cial me­dia plat­forms and hold ed­u­ca­tional road cam­paigns to raise aware­ness on safe driv­ing.

“We are go­ing to en­gage in ed­u­ca­tional road cam­paigns at road­blocks on the coun­try’s high­ways as we will be meet­ing and con­vinc­ing driv­ers to drive slowly.

“This year’s theme is ‘save lives, slow down’ and we are en­cour­ag­ing driv­ers to use the ap­pro­pri­ate speed be­cause speed­ing has been the rea­son for th­ese ac­ci­dents,” said Mr Chin­oda.

“We will also reach out to peo­ple through so­cial me­dia, broad­cast and print me­dia alert­ing them on the dan­gers of speed­ing and it is high time we stop blam­ing po­lice or any­one for th­ese ac­ci­dents,” said Mr Chin­oda.
