The introduction of safety clubs, road signs and bumps near schools has reduced accidents.

According to the latest statistics from the Road Safety in Ten Countries project, fatal accidents involving students have dropped by 30 per cent in the last two years.

National coordinator Wilfred Mwai said hundreds of school children across the country have been enlightened on road safety.

He said Naivasha and Thika were the pilot towns due to the high number of fatal accidents.

“Concerted efforts have reduced accidents in the two towns considerably,” Mwai said.

He said plans are underway to hand over the project to counties or the National Transport and Safety Authority.

Mwai said sponsors such as World Health Organization, who are behind the project, will soon pull out.

He was addressing the press in Naivasha town after the donation of reflective jackets to students from ten schools in Naivasha subcounty.
