RTSA: Communication with traffic violators

Bulk Short Messaging System has been used by THE Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to open a new line of communication with traffic violators (SMS).

Mukela Mangolwa, manager of public relations for the RTSA, claimed that the organization has created an automated application that will send alerts to owners of vehicles whose registration has been suspended on the RTSA e-ZamTIS due to various traffic offences.

The messages, according to him, will act as a reminder for traffic offenders to appear in person at RTSA offices to answer to traffic offence charges or to continue processing for legal prosecution in court.

“This initiative has been introduced to ensure offenders are promptly served with charges that may require payment of fines through the Zambia Police Traffic Section or prosecution through the Courts,” he said.

Mr. Mangolwa urged all drivers who have received SMSs from the Agency to abide by the instructions and contact the RTSA Call Centre at +260211 228798 or 0955 983983 for more information to minimize disruption.
