The closer we get to the 2022 general elections, the more accidents become a common scene in several parts of the country. There is no single day that can pass before a road accident is registered.
It is high time the government come up with some measures to reduce the number of daily accidents. All drivers who will be found breaking the laws should be held responsible for their carelessness.
Common road accidents can be as a result of the following reasons:
1. Carelessness of drivers. Some drivers are always drunk while on the roads.
2. The bad road conditions. Some roads have holes all over. Others are plain without bumps.
3. Unfavorable weather conditions that negatively affect the state of the roads. Too much rain makes the roads slippery.
4. Presence of corrupt traffic police officers who accept bribes from the conductors of the matatu at the expense of safety.
Today, 26th September, an accident involving a fuel tanker has been reported and all are advised not to draw closer to the fallen tanker.
