Light Traffic fines not helping to curb road carnage

24 July 2012, 14:37 Oduor Omondi

According to the Nyanza Provincial Traffic Enforcement Officer, Jonathan Katsoleh, light fines meted to traffic offenders in court are not helping to curb the alarming number of road carnage in the region.

Katsoleh disclosed that those arrested and taken to court for flouting traffic rules seem not to be learning any lesson as they continue repeating the same mistakes.

“I want to think that the court is giving fair charges to the culprits we usually take to them and this should not be the case if we have to do away with numerous accidents on our roads,” he said.

Speaking in his office, Katsoleh said that due to the  high frequency of accidents, the department is put to task to educate people especially drivers on how to drive safety. He divulged that a countrywide campaign on the same is soon to be launched.

Katsoleh expressed concern that despite the existence of traffic rules and regulations, they are continuously violated regardless of high accident rates and massive loss of human lives on the roads.

“Those passengers who still use sambazas (extra seats) in Nissans are arrested daily, but it seems the charges imposed on them are inadequate hence making it a routine.” he said.

He appealed to passengers and any other road user to alert the police when they sight an overload vehicle or any other mischief as far as road safety is concerned.
