On Friday, a car collision involving the driver caused delays on the Nairobi Expressway.
According to Makau Masai, commander of the Embakasi subcounty police, a driver lost control of his car and damaged the Expressway near the Nation Centre at around 9:30 p.m.
The driver, whom Masai only named as Mutuku, reportedly wasn’t hurt in the incident.
According to him, the event was recorded as a damage-only traffic collision on the Expressway to the Embakasi police station.
“At around 21.30 hours near Nation Centre, Mutuku was driving a Subaru Impreza from Nairobi CBD direction towards Mlolongo when he lost control and veered off the road damaging four guardrails and one anti-collision steel pipe,” Masai said.
According to him, authorities in Embakasi towed the car and are inspecting it now.
Even though the government has implemented strict restrictions against drivers who cause damage to the expressway’s infrastructure, there have nevertheless been several incidents.
