The most dangerous time, days and places to drive in Nairobi
Drivers be warned
Statistics compiled by Ma3route, a mobile, web and SMS platform that helps citizens to share and access information about transport and current traffic conditions for their city, reveals that most accidents in the Capital occur on Thursdays and Fridays.
Ma3Route started a campaign of rewarding Kenyans who report accidents and incidents on the roads through its Twitter handle @Ma3Route.
From the reports gathered since March 12, 2018, morning rush hours between 6am and 8am seem to be the prime time when accidents happened.
The trend then picks up at 4 pm all the way to 8 pm when Kenyans are going back home from work.
According to Ma3route’s statistics, the least number of road accidents are recorded on Sundays.
Last year, 2,919 people were killed in road accidents. This is according to 2018 Economic Survey.
3,943 of those who were involved in an accident were seriously injured while 4,353 were only slightly injured.
