HARARE – The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) in collaboration with various safety stakeholders, notably the Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ) are conducting an operation code-named Operation Tame the Traffic Jungle Phase 2 , which is in response to increased lawlessness on the roads, particularly in the capital, Harare.

The operation’s goal is to guarantee citizen road safety.

The operation was confirmed by TSCZ.

“ There is currently an ongoing joint operation (called) Operation Tame the Traffic Jungle phase 2, which is being driven by the police in collaboration with all road safety stakeholders, including the TSCZ,” said the statutory body, which is mandated to promote  road safety in the country.

Road traffic accidents nationwide decreased to 2 228 as police  stepped up operations  during the  festive season from 2 689 reported  in the prior comparative period.

Furthermore, TSCZ and the police have stepped up their road safety awareness programs, going out  and educate  motorists and other road users about various road safety-related issues.

The TSCZ has concluded its Festive Season Road Safety Awareness Campaigns, which took place between December 18, 2023, and January 1, 2024. Throughout the CBD of Harare, multiple teams spread the word about road safety to road users.

To raise awareness, TSCZ also traveled to a number of areas outside the CBD.

“We also extended our efforts and went to various locations outside the Harare CBD like Epworth, Dzivarasekwa, Mabelreign shops and Mufakose,” TSCZ said.

Plans to make these initiatives a permanent feature on the roads  are at an advanced stage, according to TSCZ .

All these measures by these stakeholders are meant to ensure the safety of citizens in the capital city, Harare.

Looking ahead, the TSCZ will support any initiative to install speed cameras on traffic lights.
