The number of accidents on Thika road is becoming alarming. Never does a day pass without having an accident in the road. Today's incident has resulted to a serious congestion streaching all the way to Kasarani. The mid morning incident is one among the many which take place each day. Though addressed on daily basis there is no intervention from the traffic to ensure careless driving and overspeeding are handled.
Kenha introduced highway patrol vans but has not been seen in the roads for sometime now. According to eye witnesses the cause of the accident between a Psv bus and a personal cat was overspeeding where the bus hit the outer lane road rails.
It has taken time for the police and recovery services to clear the scene of the area with those injured getting rushed to Mathari hospital. Traffic police are in the road and controlling the flow of traffic. It is essential for drivers to remember that speed kills. Proper road use is a duty of each motorist and minimizing accident will be a collective responsibility.
