Night travel ban a hindrance to Kenyans: Court

14 March 2014, 20:29 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has ruled that the ban on night travel is a hindrance to Kenyans and that the government must find an alternative way of reducing road carnage.

Judge George Odunga ruled Friday that it was unfair for the government to ban night travel as it was an inconvenience and urged them to look for different ways of dealing with road accidents.

He thus ordered the government to come up with proper legislation within 60 days to ensure the matter is properly and objectively dealt with.

" The ban on night travel has thrown Kenyans in disarray and the government even though with good reason has to look for a different way of dealing with the issue of night travel, he said.

The government has insisted that there is a measure of carelessness in the accidents that occur at night on Kenyan roads and that something drastic has to be done.

Transport secretary Michael Kamau has even insisted that there is need for a total ban on travel at night to curb the high number of accidents.

But Judge Odunga insisted that the government is responsible for the state of play on the country's roads and that they should not entirely blame transport providers for the trouble.

" It is the government's duty to ensure that there is sanity on roads and not transport providers, he added.

The government has in recent months worked on a formula to allow some companies licences for night travel but those have yet to be fully implemented.
