Magistrates on the road

Nairobi - In a move to fast-track the dispensing of justice by traffic offenders, mobile courts with a magistrate and clerks will be available instead of having them booked at police stations first, Daily Nation reports.
The offenders will be dealt with immediately and they will pay their fines instantly through mobile phones, according to the Senior deputy registrar at the magistrates courts Caroline Kabucho, who was officiating the launch of the “Safety First” campaign by the National Transport and Safety Authority at Uhuru Park in Nairobi on Wednesday.
This is one of the various initiatives by the police, Ministry of Transport and the Judiciary to curb road carnage which has so far claimed 2,025 people this year.
