Nakuru - More than 200 motorists were arrested along the Nakuru-Nairobi highway and were fined by the mobile courts in the ongoing national road safety campaign.
The mobile court which was located at Kikopai Trading Center, along the busy highway was able to nab several Matatu drivers for flouting traffic rules.
The operation was led by the Rift Valley traffic police boss Mary Omari, who said the new mobile court will instill discipline among the motorists who don’t comply with the traffic rules.
“This new mobile court system will really help us bring back sanity back to our roads, because we have those drivers are fond of breaching the road rules,” she said.
Omari also observed that the on going National road safety campaign will help reduce the number of accidents along the highways.
Omari pointed out that traffic officers will continue patrolling the highway to ensure all the motorists adhere to the traffic rules.
“We are not going to be reluctant because we want to enforce the rule of law in this sector and all the drivers have to comply with it” she said.
The Traffic police boss also urged the public to report to the relevant authorities, should they find any drivers flouting the traffic regulations.
