    i saw the wreckage just after they moved the body, really bad accident that one.

    there is a curve, actually several around that area. if you are speeding, it may carrier off because the road is not banked. also if you lights are low, you may miss the curving, and if you dose off too, or you are on the fone while driving.

    anyway the accident was bad.

    I pray for the family of the deceased that GOD may take good care of them.I am advicing drivers to avoid overspeeding,if the vehicle was found 100 meters away resting on a tree some small trees broken,you dont need an eye witness and dont blame the police,they are correct,overspeeding is the main couse of the accident.Since there was no collition,they were looking at the impact at the scene of the accident.Most of the night accidents are caused by drinking alcohol,blindness,sleeping and overspeeding.I hope the gov would put a law like Botswana,where drivers are not allowed to travel at night.The decision however remains with drivers themselves,to avoid dangerous driving by avoiding overspeeding,drinking and drive,driving at night or when tired,reducing speed in corners and marking sure your vehicle is fit for travel is vital. Most of the accidents happening in zambia are avoidable if we take steps to avoid dangerous driving.I want to ask all drivers please 75km speed is still dangerous driving, its too high and should anything happens you cant control a vehicle 40-60km speed in most vehicles is okey above that,i feel it is dangerou driving.With the coming of rain season,roads are slipery overspeeding is more dangerous this season.

    This is badly i’m sorry to alubusu’S family.M.H.S.R.I.P .

    Rest in peace Alubusu! Too bad!

  40. kelvin  November 3, 2012 at 21:12

    When an accident occurs the Police will conclude to say it’s over speed, alcohol etcetera and not road conditions at all.

  41. Frey  November 3, 2012 at 20:59

    Sincere condolences to family and associates. May I take this opportunity to advise that driving in the night should be avoided – if done you travel at 60% of day speed you do. If you do 120km/hr during day,at night do between 75 – 100km/hr depending on traffic especially on-coming – but reduce speed considerably as you are crossing with vehicles coming from opposite direction as visibility at night is poor – wary of parked or broken-down vehicles – as you get blinded. This is worsened by rain and poor road stretch.
    Remember to reduce speed as you approach a curve – doing say 140km/hr from a straight road around a curve there is an element of destabilization on the dynamics of the vehicle (velocity) – as the vehicle becomes less stable- thus from 140 you steadily reduce to 120 or 110 before you actually hit the curve. Remember right corners or curves are more unstable than to the left.Wherever possible avoid driving between 01.00 hrs and 04.30 hrs – and much safer to avoid driving at late hours – as just dozing for 10 or more seconds can be fatal. I hope this helps who value this tip. I have been on the road for 51 yrs – I thought we share experiences. MHSRIP

    How did they arrive at the conclusion that he was over speeding? According to this story, its seems there was no eye witness. It seems the police did an accident investigation in less than hrs.

      They just did not find his car far from where he met his fate apart from the trees he run down

    Miulwe is not on Mongu-Kalabo Road. This is an area a few kilometers from Mongu on the Lusaka-Mongu Road. It’s inaccuracies such as this that make many people doubt the seriousness you attach to your stories.

    Sorry to our dear Alubusu may his soul rest in peace,moses kalebe.
