Fresh test for drivers to curb road carnage

26 November 2013, 08:04

Nairobi - The government will next year conduct a mandatory re-testing exercise to all drivers in a move aimed at ending road carnage in the country.

The move will see close to 25,000 drivers of Public Service Vehicles lose their driving licences, The Standard reports.

The drivers will get smart driving licences after passing the driving tests that will be conducted by the National Youth Service and other reputable institutions in the country.

Through this exercise, rogue drivers and those who secured their driving licences under dubious circumstances will be netted.

Earlier on, the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) had blamed the laxity in implementing traffic laws for the recent spate of road carnages in the country.

NTSA’s chairperson said Kenya had good traffic laws but they are not fully implemented.

Kinyanjui also pointed out that the biggest problem was having uninspected vehicles on the roads marked as inspected.

Statistics indicate that over 3000 Kenyans die on road accidents annually, one of the highest rates in the world.
