City Of Windhoek faces an increasing risk of unlicensed drivers

The City of Windhoek is constantly inundated with commuters traveling between destinations and through this a worrisome trend has emerged; Many drivers behind steering wheels are either unlicensed to drive or fail to carry their licences while operating a vehicle.
This alarming violation of road safety regulations is becoming increasingly common within the city, posing a grave risk to all road users. Among the most frequently contravened provisions within the Road Traffic and Transport Act 22 of 1999, this issue of not carrying a driver’s licence shows no signs of improvement. The Windhoek City Police regularly encounters individuals who are unable to produce their driver’s licences at checkpoints, raising suspicions that a significant number of these drivers may be entirely unlicensed.
