In the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Inspector General of Police, Mr Kakoma Kanganja has suspended Snap Traffic Checkpoints until Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is secured for traffic officers.

This entails that only Permanent Security Checkpoints (Road Blocks) will be mounted as the Police Command has already secured PPE for the officers.

We, therefore, call for personal responsibility by all road users during this suspension period.

Any offender that would be spotted by law enforcement officers abrogating Road Traffic rules and regulations will be dealt with according to the provisions of the Road Traffic Act.

Permanent Security Checkpoints are those that operate on a 24-hour basis while Snap Traffic Checkpoints are those random traffic checkpoints that only last between 45 minutes and one hour.
