SUBJECT: TANZANIA: DISTRACTED DRIVING

REF: STATE 6703

¶1. Ambassador Lenhardt delivered reftel points to Foreign Minister Membe on January 25. Membe agreed distracted driving was a serious issue and promised to follow up with his colleagues in other relevant ministries.

¶2. We subsequently delivered the demarche to Omar Chambo, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Infrastructure Development.

¶3. Tanzania's Road Traffic Act of 1973 prohibits careless driving but does not directly contemplate texting or other use of mobile phones while driving.

Tanzania is currently running an awareness campaign on the importance of seatbelt use.
