More Kenyans die in road accidents in 2015

Nairobi - Road accidents have killed more Kenyans in 2015 than 2014, the National Transport Safety Authority NTSA has said.

NTSA Director General Francis Meja said Friday that there were 2,434 road deaths in Kenya in 2014, up 3.8% from the previous year.

According to him, pedestrians accounting for 43 percent of the total figure.

" Most fatalities were pedestrians hit by private vehicles because of poor visibility, drink driving and careless passers by," he said.

The peak of most of these fatalities is around 5 in the morning and just after dark in the evening.

" We also want to appeal to pedestrians and this information is very critical that should they be using the road especially when it is dark, it very important for them to wear reflective clothing so that they can easily be picked by the vehicles,” he added..

Nairobi recorded the highest number of pedestrian fatalities, he said, making the capital's roads the most dangerous in the country.

" I emphasise the need to sensitise pedestrians on the importance of using footbridges which are usually ignored," he added.

Efforts, he said have been made to reduce the number of pedestrian fatalities saying that NTSA agents had been deployed to ensure that the public crosses the roads in the right places and walk on footpaths prescribed.

He also stated that there was need for more and more measures to curb drink driving as it was a major concern.
