Bungoma Line was directed to take 162 vehicles for compliance inspection. The vehicles will also undergo compliance checks on speed limits.

All drivers of Bungoma Line will also be required to undergo a road safety sensitisation.

NTSA added that 14 drivers will also have to be retested before the licences are restored.

On the other hand, Smart Highways Sacco was directed to submit 29 vehicles for inspection. 27 of those will also undergo compliance checks on the speed limit.

All drivers belonging to the sacco will also undergo road safety sensitisation.

Two of its drivers will also undergo retesting. The two saccos will also have all their drivers undergo road safety sensitization before being allowed to operate public service vehicles.

NTSA advised police to impound the vehicles which will be operational during the inspection.
