The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has announced the return of crackdowns on the Thika Superhighway to ensure speed limits are adhered to by motorists.

Speaking during a sensitization exercise on the venture, Central Region NTSA Coordinator Kendi Mutuma explained that the decision to return to the roads was informed by the increasing number of accidents along the highway in the past few months due to speeding vehicles.

She stressed over the appalling state of motorists who are now fond of disregarding the highway speed limits.

Mutuma stated that NTSA would conduct crackdowns and sensitization to ensure that drivers stick to the speed limit in a bid to avoid fatal accidents.

“We shall enhance crackdowns as we head to the festive season. We know the highway has several black spots, and we need our drivers to be keen when driving on the road,” she said.

During the crackdown, drivers of public vehicles found to have tampered speed governors will be apprehended.

Mutuma stated that NTSA had also noticed a spike in the number of school-going children crossing at non-designated points on the road on their way to and from school. She stated that the students pose danger not only to themselves but also to motorists.

“It is a concern that young learners cross the highway to and from school on their own,” she stated.

She disclosed that NTSA would work with the Kenya National Highway Authority (KeNHA) to have guard rails erected along the crossing points to keep the children off the highway.

The NTSA boss revealed that measures had been put in place to sensitize the schools on the use of footbridges through the dubbed ‘Vuka safe’ programme. Learners have been provided with reflector jackets to make them more visible on the roads.
