Digital speed governors installation date won't be changed

24 March 2014, 13:33

Nairobi - The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) said it would not extend the deadline for public service vehicles (PSV) operators to install digital speed governors on their vehicles.

PSV operators, who were consulted in the decision, are expected to conform to the regulations by end of March.

The digital speed governors are expected to help NTSA in monitoring operations of public service vehicles with a view to enhancing safety in roads and reducing road accidents.

According to Francis Meja, the Managing Director for NTSA, the PSV operators did not have to complain about the timing of the commencement of the use of digital speed governors because he says all stakeholders were involved.

“In consultation with the players themselves it was agreed that 31st of March will be okay. So I do not envision a situation that this thing will be extended. It will not be,” said Meja.

The digital speed governor is one of the measures that have been introduced by NTSA to curb accidents in Kenyan roads. The ban on night travel by public service vehicles began in December last year while breathalyzers to tackle drunken driving was introduced in Kenya.

The NTSA chair, Lee Kinyanjui, last month lauded the measures taken by the Ministry of Transport and NTSA.

He said there had been a reduction in the number of lives lost to road accidents as compared to the same period last year.
