Police: VIPs to blame for rise in road accidents

13 October 2011, 13:45

Nairobi - Francis Kimemia, Internal Security Permanent Secretary has been issued a protest letter from the police whereby they expressed their dismay at top government officials who are among the habitual violators of the Traffic Act.

According to the Daily Nation team who were privy to the letter, the police have recommended that the VIPs be censured in Parliament or reproached in public for flouting traffic rules.

The letter by senior officers at Vigilance House, the police headquarters said that the demand for preferential treatment has created the impression that the Traffic Act is for the less privileged and therefore oppressive.

In the past few months Kenya has experienced an increase in fatal road crashes in which 400 people die every month. The latest police statistics show that between January 1 and mid-September this year 2,235 people died in road accidents and 11,737 others were injured.
