Motorcyclists urged to follow traffic rules

24 February 2012, 16:07 Tony Ndungú Karomo

Bodaboda motorcyclists have been ordered to observe safety measures while conducting their business following an accident that occurred early this week involving a motorcyclist and a vehicle in a hit and run accident along Meru-Nanyuki Highway.

Confirming the incident Imenti North OCPD James Kithuka said the rider, Eric Juma was left with a broken limb and he is recuperating at Meru Level Five Hospital.

Kithuka said 3 passengers on board aged between 10-13 years sustained minor injuries but were treated and discharged at Meru Level Five Hospital.

The police boss blamed on motorcyclists whom he said were flouting common traffic rules like carrying more than one passenger.

“In fact a motorbike is meant to carry only two people; the rider and one passenger,” he retorted.

He further reminded the boda boda operators to embrace putting on helmets and other protective wears to avert injuries in case of an accident.

Kithuka said the driver involved in the accident is on tracking urging anybody with information to alert the police.

Similarly the OCPD has appealed to area Kenya Highway Authority to clear the roadside bushes along Meru-Nanyuki Highway for security reasons.

In another incident early this week a public service vehicle veered off the newly tarmacked Meru-Marimba road killing the driver on the spot.

The body of the driver, Francis Mwenda, was sent to Meru Level Five Hospital.

Kithuka confirmed that there was only one passenger on board but he was not injured.

The police boss suspected the accident to mechanical failure though further investigations have been launched.
