  1. Patrol of Traffic Officers: There should be constant patrol of the roads by traffic control officers. This will check reckless and lawless behaviors of road users.
  1. Imposition of Fines: Every traffic offender should be punished either by imposing fines on the offender to payer by impounding the vehicle of the offender. Mobile court's orders and judgements should be respected and obeyed.
  1. Regular Vehicle Inspection: There should be regular inspection of vehicles on the road by vehicle inspection officials. Those found not to be fit or road worthy should be laid off the road.
  1. Constant Training of Motorists: Programmers for training of motorist on regular basis should be put in place. This will increase their level of obedience to the traffic regulations
  2. Obedience to Traffic Rules and Regulations: The core solution to the problems of traffic regulations lies in making all the road users obey and comply with traffic rules and regulations. This can be done through massive enlightenment campaign through the mass media like television, radio, newspaper in conjunction with Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) like Drive2live.
