Dangerous Hours to Drive on Kenyan Roads

National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has released a shocking report which indicates the most risky hours on Kenyan roads.

According to the report, 2015 Road Safety Status, most people lose their lives in road crashes between 5pm and 10pm.

The report tabulated figures of lives that were lost during specific hours. Out of the fatalities recorded in 2015, 198 lives were lost at 5pm, 176 at 6pm, 186 at 7pm, 241 at 8pm and 162 at 9pm.

“High speed of traffic, motorcyclists operating without reflective gear and pedestrians crossing at undesignated areas are some of the factors that contributed to high fatalities at those hours,”

read the report.

The statistics released by NTSA Director General Francis Meja, further revealed that the most fatal road crashes occur during the weekend with Saturday being the most affected.

“Weekends contribute the highest number of fatalities with a combined figure at an average of 38 per cent in both 2014 and 2015,” explained Meja.

In December last year, the transport regulatory body released a list of some of the most dangerous roads and areas considered as black spots in Nairobi.

The figures indicated that Mombasa road was the most risky road contributing to the loss of 59 lives out of 628 fatalities recorded across the City. This was followed by Thika Superhighway and Waiyaki Way which recorded 50 and 45 deaths respectively.
