This year’s festive season road safety campaign will primarily focus on areas such as road user education, law enforcement, and emergency response, and though all offences will be dealt with when detected, special attention will be placed on compliance with regulatory requirements, driver fitness, speeding, driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs, and emergency response. Police Officers will be expected to screen at least 50 vehicles and drivers per day over 30 days at 20 traffic checkpoints situated mainly on the B1 and B2 roads.The head of communication at the National Road Safety Council of Namibia, Ambrosius Tierspoor, told Future Media News that this week the focus will be on the Otjozondjupa region.
