Police blames careless driving for increased road accidents

11 March 2016, 13:29 Joseph Njun'geh

Murang'a - Police in Murang’a have attributed increased cases of road accidents in the area to careless driving and failure to observe road regulations.

The County Police Commander, Naomi Ichami said the most affected is Kenol-Murang’a road which is under rehabilitation.

She called upon road users to exercise caution to prevent accidents.

She said motorists and motorcyclists should at all time exercise caution while on the road and accused motorcycle riders of causing most accidents and being the highest traffic offenders.

Ichami pointed out that the Kenol- Murang’a road which is now smooth and wider than before was not to blame for accidents as a group of demonstrators wanted to insinuate.

“It is upon the users to use the good roads properly if accidents have to be curbed,” said the officer.

She also advised pedestrians to use the roads properly whenever crossing, noting that they also contribute to accidents.

Ichami warned that action will be taken against road users who flout traffic regulations.

Recently, residents demonstrated in Saba Saba area where an accident involving a motor vehicle and a motorcycle left one dead and two others hospitalized.

The residents also erected bumps on the road claiming that it had claimed too many lives with their pleas to the Kenya National Highway Authority (KENHA) to erect bumps not bearing any fruits.
