Drunk drivers to mingle with the dead-NTSA

Francis Meja, NTSA Director General

The National Transport and Safety Authority(NTSA) has come up with a new policy to have drivers who are caught driving while under influence of alcohol to work in morgues.

The safety authority said that current law was pointless in curbing the same as people caught under the influence of alcohol are charged leniently in court with a small fine.

Francis Meja, NTSA Director General said that the current penalty is lenient.

“The country has a dismal safety record” said Francis Meja.

NTSA introduced Alco-blow to curb the drunk driving menace that had been the lead cause of accidents in Kenya.

However, in a bid to avoid arrest, Kenyans have devised new ways to escape the NTSA roadblocks such as forming WhatsApp groups to keep track of road blocks at night.
