Road Fund Hands Over First Lesotho Mobile Traffic Court

Road Fund has handed over the first Lesotho Mobile Traffic Court to the Ministry of Justice, Law and Constitutional Affairs and Human Rights at a ceremony held at the Maseru Magistrate Court grounds in Maseru recently.

The Mobile Traffic Court is a fully equipped vehicle aimed at enforcing safety on the roads and also ensure effective collection of fines on traffic offences, which the Road Fund identified as a need while supporting traffic law enforcement agencies to conduct Road Blocks Campaigns.

Traditionally campaigns that the Fund supported were mainly conducted around major traffic peaks of Easter, National Independence Celebrations, Christmas and New Year periods; but with the availability of the Mobile Traffic Court various themed Road Block Campaigns will be conducted all year round.

 The need for the Mobile Traffic Court became apparent during previous campaigns which revealed that effective enforcement of the Road Traffic laws and Regulations required courts of law proceedings as most of the offences are to be adjudicated by the courts. Thus, the courts were invited to join the campaigns on a trial basis to enhance the process yielding more than expected results, hence the Mobile Traffic Court.

 This is the first ever Mobile Traffic Court to be operational in Lesotho, it is sponsored by the Road Fund and the end users are the Magistrate Court Officials. It started operating in Lesotho early this month.

    I personally don’t support this initiative by the road fund. I think we are being abused by injustice entrenched in this approach. also the fines are way hefty I mean, how are we supposed to come up with that kind of money instantly? There is lack of inclusiveness as you didn’t consult the public before you this new, weird, greedy, stupid and abusive approach was made operational. As you all know we are currently in tough times due to COVID19 do you all think this is the right time for change? I hope Good lord Jehova help soften your hearts so you can have mercy on this poor nation.
