Enforcing speed limits

In a routine radar control operation, Teogene Kairanga (right), checks the speed of passing vehicles in Nyarucyamo, a rural area 40 km from Kigali.

His colleague, Fustin Habiarima, pulls over a driver who is exceeding the speed limit.

The fine for speeding is 50 000 Rwandan francs (US$ 90).
