Yesterday, the National Transport Safety Authority (NTSA) announced that starting May 10, it will inspect all motor vehicles above four years from the date of manufacture.
In a letter signed by Interior and Citizen Services PS Paul Famba, all vehicles regardless of ownership will be inspected in line with Section 16 (2) of the Traffic Act.
Motor vehicle owners have been advised to arrange for the inspection of their cars.
This, according to the authority is in a bid to curb the perennial road carnages caused by different factors including unroadworthy vehicles.
