Govt to craft new law which will make is compulsory for public service vehicles to have speed limiters

In an effort to reduce the number of traffic accidents, the government will soon come up with a law which will  make it compulsory for all public service vehicles to be fitted with speed limiting devices. This was revealed by Transport and Infrastructural Development Deputy Minister Engineer Michael Madanha.

Speaking at the launch of the fourth Global Road Safety Week 2017 in Harare last Friday Madanha said:

I am sure we agreed on the fact that some drivers are not disciplined enough to manage speed on their own,

Intelligent speed assistance imposed on the vehicle will help the driver not to speed when the speed limit is reached.

After thorough consultations, there is nothing that would prevent my ministry from developing a road traffic law which will make it compulsory for all public service vehicles to be fitted with specified and appropriate in-vehicle speed governing technologies
