Bodaboda Operators To Face Stiffer Penalties For Breaking Traffic Laws

  • Bodaboda operators will now face stiffer penalties if caught breaking the law after the National Transport and Safety Authority launched stricter rules.

    Riders caught breaking traffic laws will now be expected to pay Ksh 20,000. Those not able to pay the fine, will serve prison sentences of up to a maximum of six months.

    Both the operators and passengers will be required to wear helmets and reflective vests with the registration number of the motor cycle inscribed on them.

    NTSA director general Francis Mejja says children will also have to wear children sized helmets.

    The Star Newspaper reports that the Authority is in talks with all county governments to ensure that BodaBoda operators are assigned specific areas and hours of operation.
