Govt Working On Electronic Traffic Management System To Reduce Accidents

Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, Cain Mathema said Government is working on introducing the Electronic Traffic Management System meant to reduce road traffic accidents.

The ETMS is an integrated computerised traffic system which will see the installation of digital cameras and other modern gadgets on the country’s roads and record accidents, generate dockets and gather statistics electronically. Said Mathema:

The country continues to lose more and more precious lives due to carnage on our roads, mainly emanating from road rage and human error. Time has certainly come for all of us, Government and all stakeholders, to join hands and put an end to this calamity on our roads. To this end, Government through the Ministry of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage will intensify its support to the police in order to speedily finalise the ETMS, which will see the installation of digital cameras and other modern gadgets at traffic intersections and also along the country’s highways. The project that has been on the cards for the past two years will reduce revenue leakages as the new system will usher in real-time monitoring of all our traffic deployments. The system will integrate all transport stakeholders like the police, Vehicle Inspection Department, Zimbabwe National Roads Administration, Road Motor Transport and Central Vehicle Registry to bring to an end traffic management challenges.
