MUST is Committed to Improving Road Safety

 

Road Safety

The MUST Road Safety Mainstreaming Committee (RSMC) members join other Kenyans in commemorating the 2023 World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Crash Victims.

On Sunday, 19th November, 2023, the Meru University of Science and Technology (MUST) family led by the Road Safety and Mainstreaming Committee (RSMC) joined the rest of the world and our fellow Kenyans in commemorating the World Day of Remembrance (WDoR) for Road Traffic Crash Victims. On this day we remember with a lot of pain the many lives lost on our roads due to traffic crashes. Every year globally, 1.3 million die in road accidents, and 50 million more are injured. This is the leading cause of death for many young people and children. Many of these deaths and injuries are preventable. Over 80% of these incidences are behavior-related speeding, drunk driving, reckless overtaking, overlapping, non-utilization of seatbelts, driving while on phone, crossing at undesignated points at times while on phone or headphones and many more.

The MUST RSMC team spearheads road safety activities in MUST and is composed of eight (8) staff members. The committee is chaired by Edwin Oduor. Other members of the committee include Michael Ngengya, Dismas Kataria, Dorris Kaaria, Ruth Karei, Jackson Mugambi, Nancy Muthoni and Samuel Mwenda.

Road Safety

The best way to remember and honor the victims is by doing our part to  make our roads safer. Let us join hands in making wise decisions on the roads.  Let us commit to support the victims and their families who are affected by these traumatic events.
