Ar­rest cops who hide, ex­tort from speed­ing driv­ers

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

If we are to curb road car­nage in this coun­try, the po­lice must be se­ri­ous. Po­lice found forc­ing mo­torists to part with money af­ter ac­cus­ing them of speed­ing on roads with­out speed limit signs and warn­ings that speed is be­ing mon­i­tored should be thrown to jail. The po­lice should not hide while record­ing speed­ing mo­torists and show proof to over­speed­ing mo­torists, as the law de­mands, be­fore tak­ing fines. The of­fi­cers should not use speed guns to make ar­rests but to make them driv­ers slow down.
