The Motorists Association of Kenya is moving on with its road safety campaign, the latest recipients being children from the GSU Primary School.
The lessons on Road Safety, which were conducted in conjunction with officers from the Traffic Police Headquarters, highlighted how pedestrians and especially children behave on the Thika Superhighway.
More than 700 students from Classes 1-8 attended the short course, which also involved officials from the Advanced Institute for Driver Education.
Though several footbridges have been erected on the massive highway, pedestrians are still opting to make mad dashes across the lanes to avoid the trouble of going up all those stairs.
Another reason pedestrians ignore the footbridges is the safety aspect, amid reports of muggings and pick-pocketing.
Close to 100 lives have been lost on the new highway, and a speed limit of 50kph is in effect to cut down on these deaths.
GSU Primary School serves pupils for local GSU oﬃcers and outlying neighbourhoods of the GSU campus.
