    One week driving lessons and they qualify as licensed drivers! I am not surprised! These guys must meet the same standards as other road users on public highways otherwise restrict them to the bush! I also ire that it will be the public to bear the costs of repairs to the damage caused!

    Considering these toll gates are tools taking us to the cleaners,  the driver is a patriot and must be commended! Someone to do the same to the lebanese speed trap  cameras?

    Mr Hamachila,
    It’s sad that accident happened. My worry is the way you build or built that booth. There’s absolutely no consideration to the fact that accidents do occur for various reasons, brake failure etc. That booth was not properly barricaded from such occurrences. Take a short trip to South Africa and see how these tool gate booths are barricaded. They factored criminal attacks and traffic ramming into booths. Those did a proper job. Go there and learn how the tool gate booths are secured, you will learn a lot. Am glad no life was lost, but as pictures depict, that booth was not protected. I repeat go to South Africa and learn how they have protected those booths.

    This is not surprising. Service organisations have become one of the lawless groups of people who believe the rule of law that applies to all Zambians; including use of roads doesn’t apply to them. Their commanders need to reign them in and stop this lawlessness. Servicemen should be the most exemplary citizens of the land. I’ve slowly been losing respect for the especially Zambia army and sure I’m not the only one. Lastly, may also suggest that all the toll gates be redesigned, very brightly lit with warning signs increased to avoid further accidents hat could cost many lives.
