The Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Transport and Infrastructural Development has advised the Zimbabwe Republic Police traffic section to embrace information communication technologies – following the reduction of roadblocks countrywide – as a way of digitally enhancing their operations in the traffic jungle.

The country’s new dispensation saw the removal of traffic police on the roads much to the elation of motorists, as the numerous roadblocks had proved to be doing more harm than good.

In a desperate bid to evade police roadblocks, motorists had resorted to night driving, a situation which resulted in an increase in fatal accidents leading to a night driving ban proposal by the transport committee.

In an interview with Capitalk FM News, Past chairperson of the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Transport and Infrastructural Development Hon Dexter Nduna said the ban may not be necessary any more since the appetite to drive at night – especially by long distance bus operators - had been reduced by the decrease in police roadblocks.  

Hon Nduna added that police should take advantage of the current dispensation and embrace information communication technologies to tame the traffic jungle.
