National Crash database

The World Health Organization declared road safety a global issue, with 1.3 million people dying each year as a result of traffic accidents. In Kenya, over 3,000 people are killed annually through road accidents. With collaboration between various transport sector players and the police, road accidents can be prevented and lives saved.

The National Police Service  will undergo a training program on the use of a road crash database system  after the official launch of the training today. The Kenya National Highways Authority (KeNHA) in partnership with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) have commenced plans to kick of the operation of the database. This system will aggregate various data points on road accidents which will assist in making informed decisions for enhancing road safety.
