PRIVATE CARS NOT BLAME FOR INCREASED ACCIDENTS. 

The National Transport and Safety Authority NTSA has released accident statistics where they errorneously blamed private motorists without giving proper specifications.

The vehicles listed as operating illegally are not private in the first place. Probox, Noah, and other seven seater have in the past been blamed for operating illegally by transporting passengers to and from various destinations. Failure to give specific names of types doing the alleged illegal business is tantamount to blaming the whole private motorists category. Private motorists mostly driving family, personal or company cars are known for thier safety records. Failure on the part of transport agency to do proper classification should not be used to give courteous drivers a bad name. 

Curiously the transport agency has not pointed out on psv indispline, motorcyclists where disregard of the rule of law has become the norm.

PRIVATE CARS AND FIRE EXTINGUISHERS LAW

Private cars. Any demand for fire extinguisher, first aid kits, tow ropes, jumpers and torches  is wrong. Private car owners can only carry such gadgets on their own choice. The law is clear on this.

The Office has contacted NTSA and they assured on the same.

What as private motorist you must carry are triangular lifesafers.

By nature of their public business and risks buses and matatu are required to carry the first two under section 56 (1)

Enjoy your day hustle free.

 

 

 

  NTSA OCTOBER 2015 STATISTICS INCOMPLETE & MISLEADING TO MAIN CAUSE OF ACCIDENTS

The statistics released by the transport authority is incomplete and misleading.  One the report does not show culpability levels in categories of users. Enforcement need to be informed by user culpability levels. This is not the case when it gets to crackdown. For example, motorcyclists who lead in deaths of riders and drivers are seldom reprimanded. Causing factor need to be categorized within respective sectors of the transport industry. Who was to blame for causing crashes and to what extent? Currently the enforcement is skewed selectively targeting one class of road users mainly the private motorists, leaving out other sectors which are obviously major contributors to the mess.

FUEL PRICE FOR PETROL REDUCE BY KES 9- 14th October 2015

Motorists’ petition was quite telling. The viewpoints were strong, varied and hard-hitting. All the signed petitions were presented to Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) in hard copies and a covering letter. MAK take this opportunity to thank all of you for stating your rights of urgent need for a fair market. Together we are stronger. Earlier Newsletter sampled some of the comments.

The big number that signed the petition is enough proof that motorists will not allow again anyone whether a public agency or private one to take them for granted. Under the organization of Motorist Association of Kenya we hope to achieve more.
