Nairobi - Are you driving over Easter? The National Transport Safety Authority NTSA is watching.
NTSA boss Francis Mejja says that the body is ready to tackle all sorts of road issues come the long weekend holidays.
Mejja insists that there will be serious effort put into ensuring that road carnage is reduced over the Easter holidays.
" The NTSA is prepared for the long weekend. We are already instituting a plan that we believe will work to help reduce carnage and also make the roads safe for well meaning road users," he said.
Many Kenyans will hit the road over the long weekend while others will hang out in entertainment joints all over the country.
Mejja has asked that those who plan to cause disorder stay away from the roads.
" There will be roadblocks on all major highways. There will also be serious alcoblow and speed checks. We have put all our officers on notice for the weekend," he added.
He warned those found on the wrong side of the law of serious consequences.
The holidays have always been a black spot on Kenyan roads over the years and the NTSA is keen to ensure that lives are saved during this year's holidays.
