The Traffic Management Unit is responsible for traffic control related matters, and maintenance of all city street signs and road markings, in addition to traffic law enforcement activities such as speed and DUI enforcement. The Unit also participate in special events (parades, funeral processions, VIP escorts, etc.), and conduct other safety related programs.

The Traffic Management Unit has four operational strategies namely: Engineering, Education, Enforcement and Evaluation. These are the pillars that guide all road safety operations of the Windhoek City Police Service, and the aim is to prevent crashes, injuries and fatalities on our roads.

The following are the Windhoek City Police Service Road Safety Pillars:

Traffic engineering looks at road designs and considers variables such as population, industrial areas and town growth in order to ensure the safe and efficient flow of traffic. Traffic engineering measures include identifying road safety problem areas and developing solutions to those problems.

Activity aimed at controlling road user behavior by preventative, persuasive and punitive measures in order to effect the safe and efficient movement of traffic.

This involves developing and implementing road safety programs aimed to inform, educate and raise awareness. All road users must be taught the safe and proper way to use roads.

Evaluation is essential to establish whether interventions are effective at improving road user safety and can contribute towards the goal of reducing death and injury on our roads. Evaluation is also key to developing evidence informed practice, and identifying, in advance, the type of interventions that are most likely to be effective.
