Kenya has passed new laws which are expected to reduce the number of road accidents happening in the country.
A 36-year-old man was reportedly charged after being caught on the wrong side of the law.
Sources reveal that the man was overspeeeding in his car thus endangering the lives of pedestrians. He was driving a kroner Mazda CX-3 with his girlfriend.
He was arrested and charged ksh 20,000. According to reports, the car which belongs to the girlfriend is also going to be auctioned.
All these rules have been put in place to ensure road-related accidents reduce in the country. If a driver is also found driving while drunk and happens to knock a pedestrian, he/she is going to be fined an amount of money not less than ksh 30,000.
Do you think this move by the government is going to be effective in the country? Have your say in the comments section down below.
