NTSA plan to reduce road accident.
The government aims to reduce by half, deaths and serious injuries on Kenyan roads.
The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) road safety action plan 2023-2027 reveals that to achieve this, the focus will be on designated high-risk demonstration corridors and urban areas.
The document launched on Wednesday finds that current road safety situation is alarming, with pedestrians and motorcyclists at the most risk of 35 and 38 per cent respectively.
Speaking at the launch, the Principal Secretary for Transport, Mohamed Daghar noted that the fatalities and safety issues on the roads have been a menace in the country.
“4,000 lives are lost every year, we have a score of those who are injured; some of them permanently, widows and orphans are created when accidents occur directly affecting the family, households and community,” said Mohamed.
