WHO recently released the Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015 that indicated 1.25 million people die each year from traffic crashes. Kenya accounts for an estimated 12,891 of those deaths. Many of these are children.
Kenya has the opportunity to address the high rate of injuries and fatalities from road crashes through the Traffic (Amendment) Bill 2014, which aims to reduce speeds around schools so that children no longer risk their lives getting to school.
