Tanzania police use naming and shaming of traffic violations


Police in Tanzania’s main city Dar es Salaam have found a novel way of stopping motorists from flouting traffic laws: naming and shaming them.

Instead of charging drivers who break the law, traffic officers are  ordering them to stand by their car and hold a display board with their personal details – including name, age and religion – and the traffic law they violated.

The police say this punishment is working and is helping to make sure the courts don’t get clogged up.
