Crackdown on traffic offenders continues

06 December 2012, 11:12 Kelvin Mureithi

Police in Imenti North District Meru County have arrested twenty traffic law offenders.

Imenti Central OCPD, Sylvester Githungo said the arrests that kicked off since Saturday are aimed at ensuring that all road users comply with the new traffic laws.

Githungo who was addressing the media in Meru town said Police were checking if motorbike owners had helmets and licenses, and if vehicle owners/drivers had licenses.

He however noted that most of the vehicle and motorbike owners had not complied with the new traffic laws and have already removed their vehicles from the road.

He also pointed out that matatus and taxis were still on strike saying members of the public who wanted to travel to Meru from Nkubu which is about twenty kilometers had no option but walk.

He expresses optimism that the taxis, matatus and motorbikes will comply with the law and end the strike.

Meanwhile, Imenti North OCPD Tom Odero said Police in the area have been able to contain striking matatus drivers and owners who had taken to the streets to disrupt traffic on Tuesday.

He observed that although the matatu vehicles and taxis are still on strike, there was smooth and normal traffic flow within the town.

He said so far no arrests have been made in connection with the new traffic regulations.
