Yaluma1By PRISCA JANGAZYA -

GOVERNMENT has challenged the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) to collaborate with Information Communication Technology (ICT) stakeholders to find solutions to the increased road
carnage.

Transport, Works, Supply and Communications Minister Christopher Yaluma said in Lusaka yesterday that Government and the private sector should raise ICT awareness to facilitate improved road safety and ensure safer vehicles on the roads.

Mr Yaluma said this during commemoration of the World Telecommunication Information Society Day.

He said the severity of road crashes could not be fully assessed because they went beyond the economic impact and tragic loss of life to profound impacts such as trauma and long term suffering.
