Matatu drivers put on notice

03 January 2013, 14:39 Steve Wambugu

A day after 19 people died in a car crash in Molo, Rift Valley Provision Police Officer John Binjiwa has issued a strong warning to both the drivers and conductors over carrying excess passengers.

The PPO at the same time put his fellow police officers on notice that they risked facing tough disciplinary measures should any traffic police allow a Nissan Matatu to carry excess passengers.

Addressing  the media at his office on Thursday morning, Binjiwa said some accidents were avoidable if only the road users could follow the new traffic regulations saying many drivers need to go back for refreshing courses.

The PPO said the recent accident in Molo was a bad one and all the drivers need to be keen when they are driving.

He also urged the public not to enter a Matatu that is all ready full to capacity.

He further said the law will not be lenient on any road users who will be caught breaking the new laws, saying it was a collective responsibility for everybody to ensure safety on the roads.

Binjiwa said he will be conducting a serious car inspections in Nakuru County so as to remove the unworthy vehicles from the roads some of which he said were the main cause of accidents.
