Apolo... We have foolish people who don't want to use footbridge and end up crossing the road when footbridge is just few meters. Outering is a highway used by many vehicles and pedestrians expect everyone on the road should be stopping for them to cross.
Mutai... I'll advise Nairobians to use the footbridges always while crossing.
Lovy... Pedestrians always cross the road directly,they don't use the footbridges erected along outer ring road, especially Mutindwa,kware ,tassia fedha and pipeline stages.Kenha should intervene imediately and build a barrier in between the road so as to bar them from crossing directly.
