Blurb/Shorttext:
Road safety continues to be an intractable problem for Kenya’s transport system despite many years of initiatives to reduce the carnage. It is reported that in more than 80 per cent of the cases, it is human error that is to blame for the crashes. Police data cites human error, road environment and vehicle factors as the main causes of road crashes. In most police stations, however, officers only record intoxication as a contributing factor in fatal crashes or where the driver has caused injury then he is charged with ‘dangerous driving’ It seems no-one understands the effect of other causation factors like fatigue. Driver fatigue can severely impair judgment and can affect anyone. Road crashes and fatigue are interconnected through a synergistic relationship. The multiplier-effect of suffering incurred through crashes on the roads may even run deep in society to more persons than were initially affected. This study aims to enhance both the travellers and the driver safety and comfort through planning options as a novel means of reducing traffic crashes for long distance road users.
