The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has developed a new curriculum for the training and testing of drivers. Director General Francis Meja said at least 90 per cent of accidents result from human error, therefore the need for revised training curriculum. “Road safety is a serious issue in Kenya.
With approximately 3,000 people dying every year in road accidents and many others living with injuries, NTSA has developed a new curriculum split into several modules that provide guidance for the training and testing of drivers of motorcycles, public service vehicles and heavy commercial vehicles,” he said.
Meja added that the curriculum includes theoretical sections, examinations and practical sections. The development of the new curriculum by NTSA comes following public outcry following numerous road accidents recently.
