Nakuru’s radio queen and road safety ambassador, Kate Vobic, today led a delegation to Stem, Nakuru East for a road safety awareness campaign.
In a bid to cub out the increase in road accident cases, Nakuru’s traffic police department in conjunction with Kate Vobic, a presenter with Hero Radio, has organized a series of road safety sensitization campaigns in different parts of Nakuru.
Present during today’s event was Nakuru East MP Hon. David Gikaria who called upon Bodaboda riders to observe the laid rules and regulations governing road usage in order to ensure minimal incidences.
“The rules that have been put in place are for your own safety. They are not meant to oppress you. Follow them for your own good” he said.
“As your leader, I am here to give you support in your endeavours, but this will be hard if you don’t corporate” he added.
On his side, the Nakuru Traffic base commander, Mr Thoya, called upon the Bodaboda riders to ensure that they enrol for driving classes and get road usage skills.
“Road safety starts with you. You should enrol in any of the recognized driving schools and get a driving license.” he urged.
Kate Vobic, who donated reflector vests to those who attended the sensitization campaign, emphasized on the need of road concentration and speed limit.
“Speed kills, please be careful. Ride on moderate speed, it’s all the same. At the end, you will still get to your destination, safe and sound” she said.
“There is no point of dying of speed, leaving your wives widows, something that you have control over,” she added.
Also present were OCS, Mwaniki Macharia and MCA Mwaniki Sonko.
Nakuru East Hon. Gikaria donated Kshs. 10,000 and promised to lead a team for road marking.
