Signs,signs 005: Road safety commitments


This sign is required by the Kenyan government to be put up in all vehicles:

I saw this sign in a matatu on my way back to Lukore from Mombasa. I just don’t know how much success it is getting though because for one, matatu drivers still drive like maniacs and there are times I saw drivers on the phone while driving. Seatbelts? Huh. Helmets? Hmmm… occasionally. I wonder how these are being monitored…


  1. I think, as you have noticed, that this may not be the best way to reduce accidents and unsafe driving, though the reminder is good to see.
    I like how the Not Bribe Police is highlighted in red!!
