Nairobi - Commuters and other road users have been urged to report reckless drivers to the authorities in order to curb road carnage during the festive season.
Kieni East Sub-County Assistant Commissioner, James Chacha said commuters have a major role in reducing road accidents.
Speaking at Chaka Township on Thursday, Chacha asked motorists to be cautious when travelling along Kiganjo-Narumoru road which has since been identified as a black spot.

“We can get rid of road accidents if all of us become responsible. If your driver is careless, do not remain quiet and risk your life but report to the police immediately. Users of Public Service Vehicles (PSV) must play their roles efficiently,” said Chacha.
He blamed ignorance regarding road safety rules and regulations, carelessness and little knowledge on Highway Code for the increased road accidents.
Meanwhile, police have warned private vehicle owners against using them as matatus, pledging to screen the ID cards of passengers to establish if they are relatives.
