Police to conduct countrywide crackdown as road crash fatalities hit 3,541

The National Police Service (NPS) plans to launch a nationwide enforcement campaign to ensure that all road users are safe.

This comes as the number of fatalities due to road accidents hits 3,541 in the last nine months, a 7.8 percent rise compared to the same period last year.

According to the NPS, the following areas of compliance will be checked; PSV licence and badge validity verification, motor vehicle inspection sticker verification for PSVs and commercial vehicles, Fleet Speed monitoring, lane discipline enforcement to prevent overlapping and dangerous overtaking, and passenger seatbelt use.

According to NPS Spokesperson Bruno Shioso, from January 1, 2022 to September 26, 2022, the service recorded a total of 15,924 road crash victims nationwide; 3,541 were fatally injured, 7,236 were critically injured, and 5,147 were slightly hurt.

“The last couple of months have registered an increase in the number of road traffic accidents across the country and unfortunately several road users have tragically lost their lives as a result while others are recuperating in hospitals,” said Shioso.

NPS attributed the increase in accidents and fatalities to commuters not wearing seat belts, over speeding, and poor mechanical condition of vehicles.

“We also observe a sharp increase in fatalities among passengers and in the last one week, (18-26 September 2022) a total of 145 persons have perished,” the statement reads in part.

The police department expressed condolences to the bereaved and indicated that the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) will undertake a public awareness campaign over the period of the enforcement.

“We note that our roads can be unforgiving, and we all have a responsibility to use them safely. As road users and stakeholders, we urge you to co-operate with the enforcement officers as they conduct this exercise and to always follow the laid down road traffic rules to ensure your safety and that of others,” Shioso said.
