Watchdog Raises Red Flag on Road Carnage

By John Kariuki

The Road Safety Association or Kenya has raised a red flag on the increasing number of deaths on our roads and called upon government agencies to curb the carnage.

David Kiarie is the Chairman of RSAK and he says to date more than two thousand people have perished in road accidents since January to date.

The Road Safety Association of Kenya says the police should take Implementation and enforcement of traffic rules seriously.

“The police ought to move with speed and curb this menace. The policies and regulations are in place what is lacking is implementation. It’s so pathetic that at the moment we have lost the over 2,000 people so far and yet this is not the festive period when we usually experience high casualties,” Kiarie said

The association is also calling for a probe on the issuance of digital driving licences claiming that the award and subsequent renewal of the contract is shrouded in mystery.

He called for caution in our roads especially this electioneering period in a bid to save lives calling agencies tasked with ensuring road safety to work in tandem.
