MOTORISTS in Livingstone have called on the council, Zambia Police traffic department and RTSA to quickly put road signs and markings on the Mosi-oa-Tunya Road leading to the Victoria Falls.
Motorists told the Daily Nation, that the road has no road signs for speed limits as well as lane markings which could lead to serious fatalities.
They complained that because of lack of signs for speed limits and lane markings, many drivers have become victims of police road blocks.
“We have fallen prey to traffic police officers who mount speed traps on this road near the Zambia Railways station, yet we do not know speed limits because there are no signs to warn us,” said one motorists.
One of the speed trap victims Junior Mweemba said that motorists and tourists were being inconvenienced because there were no signs of speed limits on the Mosi-oa-Tunya Road.
“Surprisingly, each time you are driving above 60 kilometres per hour, the police will impound your vehicle due to what they claim to be over speeding but there are no signs to show the speed limits,” said Mr Mweemba
Another driver Victor Mweela also called the authorities to consider re-doing the road markings at the junction of Mosi-oa-Tunya and Nakatindi Roads where traffic lights were.
Mr Mweela said that motorists were having challenges of keeping in correct lanes because lane markings had faded out.-
