ZRP national police spokesperson Senior Assistant Commissioner Charity Charamba has said that the police are going to restructure the traffic section. The ZRP is also going to introduce technology such as 24-hour live cameras in order to reduce corruption and to apprehend offenders. Speaking to the Sunday Mail, Charamba said,
….From the changes that include the reduction of roadblocks after so many complaints about the public, the Commissioner-General directed that roadblocks are reduced and synchronised and there will be more focus on decongesting the city, as opposed to mounting roadblocks.
We are still awaiting delivery of more cameras, but we have deployed some cameras at strategic places so that we don’t chase people around like we used to. But the challenge we have is that so many vehicles do not have number plates, we already have an operation targeting such vehicles.
…We are also introducing a new system to curb corruption. With the new Electronic Traffic Management System, there will be no way a police officer can change amounts charged for fines.
