Court lifts night travel ban

Public Service Vehicle operators as well as passengers have welcomed the lifting of the ban on night travel ban by the High Court saying it was long overdue.

Bus companies say the ban had affected their flow of revenues.

The ruling was welcomed by companies, drivers as well as passengers.

Public transport companies, drivers and other road users have been urged to observe traffic rules not only to avoid future night travel ban but also to ensure sanity prevails on our roads.

National Transport and Safety Authority NTSA banned night travel by PSV vehicles since the 30th of December last year.

However some staff were not aware of the development and were still banking on the two week period given by NTSA.

And to ensure road safety prevails, road users are advocating for collective responsibility by all.

Meanwhile Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibichu says the government will soon come up with a new public transport policy aimed at reducing fatal road crashes that claim at least 3 thousand lives annually.

Kibichu says the policy will also target the bodaboda sector that he says has greatly contributed to road fatalities
