NTSA attributes high cases of accidents to drunk driving

02 September 2015, 09:25 Carol Chebet

Nairobi - The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has attributed the high percentage of accidents involving PSVs to drunk driving.

According to NTSA Deputy Director Corporate Communications, Dominic Kabiru, statistics show that majority of the accidents on the roads have been caused by drunk drivers.

Kabiru was speaking during an operation in Nakuru where more than 10 public transport drivers were found to have exceeded the recommended alcohol limit.

“We have nabbed more than 10 drunk PSV drivers who were driving with innocent passengers on board. It is very sad that we are losing innocent Kenyans to accidents because of such drivers who work under the influence of alcohol,” Kabiru said.

He noted that such cases are common in Nairobi but they will extend the operations to other towns so as to curb accidents.

“Statistics do not lie; we want to work towards reducing accidents on the roads all over the country. To curb such rogue drivers, we will not relent. We will extend our operations to other towns,” he observed.
