Motorcyclist fined KES 10 000 for lack of helmet, license

17 September 2013, 16:13 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - A young man was on Tuesday fined KES 10 000 by a Nyeri Court for riding an unlicensed motorbike and without a helmet.

Peterson Muigai Muchiri appeared before the acting Principal Magistrate Christine Wekesa and admitted riding the motorbike along the Nyeri - Nyahururu road on August 11.

The court heard that Muigai was stopped by a traffic police officer who arrested him for not wearing a helmet and riding an unlicensed motorbike.

The Prosecutor, Peter Wahome, requested the court to hand him a stiff penalty to serve as a warning to all other careless riders and drivers causing accidents.

The accused was fined KES 5 000 for each of the two counts.

In mitigation, Muigai asked for forgiveness saying that he was jobless and had wife and two children who depend on him.
