After the first center was implemented in Vila Alice, this Monday a second center was opened, called 'Carteste', at kilometer 30 of the well-known 'Estrada de Catete'. The works, financed by the IPO company, were valued at 800 million kwanzas.

The equipment has six inspection lines - two for heavy vehicles and four for light vehicles - and also has services such as vehicle maintenance. According to the general director of IPO, cited by Jornal de Angola, each inspection service will cost between 15 and 23 thousand kwanzas, depending on the vehicle.

Tony Xie Yu also added that the center generated 30 new jobs (20 direct and 10 indirect), the vast majority for young people, who underwent training in the area. "The center will have 12 inspectors licensed by the National Police's Traffic and Road Safety Directorate", said the person in charge, who announced the intention to expand the 'Carteste' centers to the rest of the province of Luanda and Zaire.

Also present on the occasion, the director of Traffic and Road Safety (DTSER), commissioner Abel Baptista, stated that one of the main objectives with the opening of these new centers is to reduce the number of road accidents in the country. "We want to reduce the number of accidents to 50 percent and this goal will only be possible to achieve if there is serious supervision," he said. Remember that 24 periodic inspection centers are planned to be opened across the country in the short term.

The inauguration was attended by the ambassador of South Africa, Oupa Monareng, representatives of the ambassador of China, Lu Yu Zhong, the Provincial Directorate of Transport, Traffic and Urban Mobility of Luanda, the National Land Transport Agency and the Directorate of Traffic and Security Bus station.
