A new campaign backed by the United Nations seeks to reduce the official speed limit in urban areas to 30 kilometres per hour.
In Kenya and most countries, the speed limit in urban places is 50km/h, but only reduces to 30km/h near schools.
The campaign comes at the start of the sixth UN Global Road Safety Week, which commences Tuesday and ends on May 23.
Badly designed roads lead to this - if doing 50kp/h is currently an issue, how about 30kp/h? Soon we will be required to do 10kp/h because of the road and settlement designs are not well thought out.
