According to the latest Traffic Crashes report released on Monday, October 14, the authority ranked Nairobi as the most dangerous county to operate in as a motorist owing to its high accident rates.
In the statistics covering January to October this year, the capital city recorded the highest fatalities (337), a decrease from the same period the previous year which recorded 344 deaths.
Nairobi was followed by Kiambu and Nakuru counties which recorded 233 and 181 deaths respectively.
Kiambu recorded a surge of 13 fatalities from the previous year while Nakuru had a reduction of 6 deaths.
The other counties with high fatalities from the report included Machakos (168), Murang'a (105), Kakamega (102) and Makueni (92).
The report also disclosed that men lost their lives on Kenyan roads 83% more than women.
The statistics showed that 2,266 cases, of the 2,693 lives lost in road accident, were men while 427 were women.
This was a significant rise when compared to 1,927 men and 406 women who lost their lives as a result of road crashes for the same period last year.
