Road safety

In 2007 a road assessment programme was carried out at the initiative AA of Kenya in collaboration with the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Roads and the Local Government. The assessment covered 2500km of road network in Kenya to identify the sections of road with high fatality rates. The project was successfully completed and the AA and International Road Assessment Programme are now lobbying the Government and donors for implementation of recommendations of the report.

The AA of Kenya in conjuction with FIA Foundation and the Ministries of Education and Roads has been carrying out training programmes for school children at the Children’s Traffic Parks located in Nairobi, Nyeri, Kisii, Kisumu and Kakamega.

To sensitise the public on road safety issues, numerous road safety campaigns are carried in many parts of the country. These include conducting of seminars to the Kenyan motorists including public service vehicle drivers (matatu crews) and school-going population (the future motorist). Leaflets on proper road usage literature and tools are given out during these campaigns. The campaigns are conducted in conjunction with the Kenya Police.

Its objectives and aims were to promote and safeguard the interests of motorists by providing information and advise about the purchase, maintenance and repair of vehicles, negotiating attractive insurance premiums, road mapping and the setting up of petrol depots.
