The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has warned people on wedding convoys against violating the road safety regulations.


RTSA Chief Executive Officer Zindaba Soko said wedding convoys were not exceptional to any road traffic rules in the country.


In an interview with ZANIS in Lusaka today, Mr. Soko said drivers of cars on wedding convoys will be liable for prosecution for failure to advise their passengers to observe road traffic rules.


He said it would be sad for a joyous occasion such as a wedding to result into an unhappy occasion simply because of negligence by
drivers who fully understand road traffic rules.


Mr. Soko said it was dangerous for people celebrating a wedding to sit on motor vehicle doors or roofs hence the need for drivers to take a leading role to prevent any accidents.


He has since called on members of the public to immediately report any wedding convoy procession violating traffic rules by dialing the hotline number 983.
