Who We Are
The Traﬃc Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ) exists in terms of the Traﬃc Safety Act (Chapter 13: 17) and aims to operate at the highest level of performance in the promotion of road safety in order to reduce deaths, injury and property damage on Zimbabwe’s roads.
Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe emerged from the Zimbabwe Traffic Safety Board which originated from a voluntary organisation composed of area associations in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru and Mutare. These area associations were formed voluntarily by citizens who were concerned about the severity of accidents occurring on the roads in Zimbabwe and the resultant loss of life, injury and loss of property.
It was born out of the need to plan and implement educational programmes in order to improve the population’s road safety awareness. The board was put in place to control and manage road Traffic Safety programmes under the Chairmanship of the secretary for transport and energy as the responsible authority.
