Children Using Motorbikes Risk Death and Respiratory Infections

Back to ARC

The desire to have children acquire quality education is pushing many parents to send their children to schools far from home. However, the lack of school buses has resulted in parents hiring vans or motorcycles.

In Kisumu, for example, many motorcycles carrying small children meander irresponsibly between speeding matatus, trucks and private cars as they rush to get to school on time. Most of the motorcyclists do not have helmets or heavy jackets for their clients. Some of these children are so young that they cannot hold on to the motorcyclist and can easily fall off.
