Kandirikirira said Namibia should follow the example of the European Union (EU), which recently announced plans to introduce speed limits and emergency braking technologies in all new car models, starting in 2022, in order to improve road safety.
Kandirikirira also suggested that a scheme should be implemented to allow roads to have three lanes consisting of two lanes of traffic in one direction and a single lane in the oncoming direction at certain intervals.
“Let us find amicable solutions that are able to reduce road fatalities,” he said.
Kandirikirira said existing roads can also be transformed in this way.
“This should apply to roads such as the ones between Otavi to Otjiwarongo to Okahandja and Windhoek to Rehoboth where accidents happen more often,” he added.
He added if drivers are speeding, passengers should tell them to slow down.
If they don't comply, passengers should refuse to continue their journeys.
