Police give safety guidelines for long weekendBy Sipilisiwe Ncube on 1 Jul 2017
Police Spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo has advised members of the public to be mindful of their personal security over the long weekend which begins today.
In a statement yesterday, Mwaata advised people to avoid giving opportunities to criminals to perpetrate crimes.
“We are alive to the fact that during such holidays, criminals also heighten their criminal activities with a view of attacking unsuspecting members of the public and stealing valuables from them. It is for this reason that we have intensified our patrols in communities to ensure that the lives and properties of people are safeguarded,” Mwaata said.
“To those of you traveling during this long weekend, we urge you to always abide by road traffic rules and regulations so as to avoid causing unnecessary accidents. Of late, the numbers of pedestrians being involved in road traffic accidents have continued increasing, a situation which is worrying.”
She has also advised pedestrians to be cautious as they walk on or cross the roads to avoid getting involved in road traffic accidents.
“Furthermore, we appeal to motorists to also demonstrate respect for other road users as most of the accidents involving pedestrians have been attributed to reckless driving by motorists. To those going to trade fair grounds, we urge you to always take care of your personal effects and ensure that you adequately secure your motor vehicles,” said Mwaata.
“As Zambia Police, we always stand ready to attend to any distressing situation that may arise as our desire is to see to it that people live and conduct their businesses in a more conducive environment, free of crime.”
