The commissioner for traffic and road safety department, Commissioner of Police (CP) George Rumanzi, gave statistical impact of the new lanes saying that they will reduce the time a vehicle was spending at the centre queue up for inspection and increase the number of inspections per day.

“On average the center was testing between 400 and 500 vehicles a day; a vehicle could wait in the queue between 60 and 90 minutes; with the introduction of these two new lanes, the daily inspections will increase to between 600 and 700 vehicles per day while the maximum time one will spend in the queue will reduce to 45 minutes,” said CP Rumanzi.


Rwanda National Police started its vehicle inspection services in 2008 when the first two lanes were established at Remera MIC, then with the capacity to inspect only 150 vehicles per day. Inspecting each vehicle lasts not more than five minutes

Out of the five lanes, three will be handling only vehicles that weigh less than 3.5 tons while others will be handling trucks.
