Drivers in the country have been advised to reduce speed and observe road signs whenever they are driving in order to avoid road accidents.
The warning has been brought forward by northern region public relations officer Maurice Chapola following the increase of preventable road accidents in the region.
In his remarks, Chapola said the northern region has registered a series of accidents which were caused by overspeeding drivers.
He advised the drivers to always observe road signs when on the roads in a bid to reduce road accidents which are claiming innocent lives.
The publicist said that it is high time that drivers need to recognise their responsibility whenever they are on the roads of the country.
The call comes days after a fatal accident occurred in Mzuzu. 15 people died due to the accident which involved four vehicles. Meanwhile police have arrested the driver of one of the vehicles since he is suspected to have caused the accident
