Parliament Proposes Reversal of Speed Limit Laws Near Schools

Back to ARC

A parliamentary committee has proposed a reversal of traffic rules that aimed to curb road carnage near schools. The Traffic (Amendment) Bill, 2014 states that too many of our children are being killed or maimed as they travel to and from school because roads are too dangerous and had proposed a speed limit of 30km per hour near schools. But now an amendment by Maina Kamanda led Transport Committee wants the speed limit near schools to be revised to the current 50 Km per hour which could result to more road crashes, especially near schools.
