RTSA concerned with the road safety profile of Likili Motorways
THE Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) is concerned with the road safety profile of Likili Motorways Limited following a number of road traffic accidents the passenger service operator has recorded in the recent past.
RTSA Director and CEO Gladwell Banda made the observation in a letter written to the operator recently following an exculpatory letter written by Likili Motorways contending the Agency’s intention to revoke its road service Licence.
The RTSA recently engaged Likili Motorways to show cause why it’s Road Service Licence (RSL) should not be revoked following a road traffic accident that happened along the Great North Road in Kabwe on December 26 last year in which five people died on the spot and several others sustained serious injuries.
Mr Banda said that despite the operator submitting that it has a fleet management policy in place and is also implementing a GPS system, the Agency is still concerned with the effectiveness of the monitoring mechanism as the RTSA has noticed that the operator’s drivers are still able to drive at excessive speed.
“Given the aforementioned the Agency will, in due course, send a team of officers to assess the effectiveness of the operator’s fleet safety measures after which the Agency will, if necessary, make further recommendations for improvements in order to enhance the safety of the operator,” Mr Banda said.
This is according to a statement issued by RTSA acting head of public relations, Mukela Mangolwa.
