THE Traffic Safety Council of Zimbabwe (TSCZ) will soon launch a new Highway Code which it hopes will reduce road traffic accidents by 45 percent in the country.

The TSCZ yesterday embarked on a two-day Sadc signage training of trainers' workshop.

Bulawayo Regional Traffic Safety head, Miss Barbra Mpofu, said all Sadc countries are now required to have uniform traffic control devices and this includes road markings, signs and traffic signals and they were working towards that.

Miss Mpofu said the TSCZ will soon launch the new Highway Code in line with the Regional Bloc's Protocol on Transport, Communication and Meteorology.

Miss Mpofu said among other changes, the new Highway Code will see the introduction of the four- way stop signs.
