Only 40% of Namibian drivers follow road safety regulations


Only 40% of the motoring public adheres to road safety regulations in Namibia.

This staggering statistic is a major concern for law enforcement officials, given the increasing number of vehicles and new drivers, making adherence to traffic regulations a major challenge.

As of January 2024, more than 1,100 speeding fines have been issued, while 135 drivers were fined for using cell phones while driving. 

Another 140 drivers were charged for overloading, while 410 fines were issued for not adhering to road traffic signs.
