—–The Lusaka Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) has expressed concern at the increasing number of motor vehicle accidents in the country.


LCCI president, Chabuka Kawesha, said the Chamber was saddened with the continued human loss on Zambian highways.


Dr Kawesha has since directed Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) and the Zambia Police to effect laws which the agency must implement in deterring road accidents.


 And Dr Kawesha has suggested that motor vehicle holding yards be introduced which will be operated by full-time licensed RSTA offices.


Dr Kawesha said it is saddening to see accident vehicles being packed at police stations.


He has since appealed to the police service to urgently establish secure yards for packing accident vehicles.


Dr Kawesha explained that cars involved in an accident must be stationed in holding yards and owners must be made to pay K25 per day.


He stated that the eyesore created by accident vehicles stationed at Long Acres and Manda Hill subtracts from the beauty of the city.
