THERE is no short cut to the new traffic rules, Coast traffic boss Martin Kariuki has said. Kariuki said although Mombasa is among the worst hit by the public transport crisis, the traffic department will not allow any vehicle on the road without fully complying with the new rules.
"The law has to be enforced and followed. We must have order on our roads," said Kariuki. He said the number of accidents has reduced since the new rules came into place.
Kariuki was speaking to in Mombasa on Thursday, a day after the Reformed Matatu Owners Association appealed to the transport ministry, police and the National Transport and Safety Authority to give more for compliance with the new rules.
