The Road Transport and Safety Agency RTSA has introduced a new channel of communication with road traffic offenders through bulk Short Messaging System SMS.

RTSA has developed an automated application that will be generating messages to owners of motor vehicles that have been suspended on the RTSA e-ZamTIS for various traffic violations.

The messages will serve as reminders for traffic offenders to report to the RTSA offices to answer to traffic offence charges or for onward processing for prosecution through the Courts of law.

This initiative has been introduced to ensure offenders are promptly served with charges that may require payment of fines through the Zambia Police Traffic Section or prosecution through the Courts.

The agency has therefore appealed to  all motorists who have received SMSs from the Agency to comply and get in touch with the RTSA Call Centre for details
