With Christmas drawing closer, roads are becoming busier.

Some road users have, however, commended the law enforcement visibility on the road.
The B1 national road, especially in Otjozondjupa Region, is considered a busy and accident-prone route, and traffic officers presence is pleasing to motorists.

Otjiwarongo Constituency Councillor Marlayn Mbakera and Police Inspector General Lieutenant General Joseph Shikongo also made a stopover.

"They are actually doing a very good job, so I would like to applaud them. The visibility of them on the roads, I think, is one of the reasons why so far we have had few fatalities on our roads. What I have observed is that they not only do not check but also do education. So we also joined them in education, educating our people as to how your tyres should be, and we also educated them on tyre pressure."

"I am really, indeed, very pleased because of the way we drove from Windhoek. But between Windhoek and Okahandja, so far, the road is busy, but I think the behaviour of the drivers is really impressive. What we have seen is that there is not a lot of traffic there, but you can see people are behaving. However, it's going to pick up. The indication is that we have really had a good start. But we should not take that for granted. The road is still going to get busy, but we just appeal to people to really behave in the same manner that was observed this morning," said Inspector General of the Namibian Police, Lieutenant General Joseph Shikongo.
