Why Most Kenyans Don’t Wear Seat Belts

Why Most Kenyans Don’t Wear Seat Belts

The importance of wearing seat belts cannot be underestimated. While seat belts have become important in recent times and have been built into new cars, it is rather shocking that most Kenyans don’t wear seat belts.

Seat belts are very essential in protecting drivers and passengers from being thrown off the car when the inevitable accident occurs. It reduces the rate of being harmed and injured during a road accident because it works with the air bags to protect you.

Despite the marvelous work of seat belts, most Kenya’s simply don’t wear their seat belt. It is no wonder the alarming rate of road accidents in Kenya. So why is it that most Kenyans don’t wear seat belts and simply expose themselves to road hazards?

  1. Lack of Education on the Importance of Seat belts

There have been a lot of awareness about road safety, but few awareness have been put in when it comes to doing the things that will enable road safety to reign—things such as wearing of seat belts.

There should be more awareness and education on key causes of road accidents death like overspeeding, reckless driving and failure to wear seat belts. This will enable most Kenyans to be safety conscious and put on their seat belt!

  1. People Don’t Feel Comfortable When they Buckle Seat Belts

Most Kenyans just want to feel comfortable. But you don’t want to feel comfortable at the expense of your safety. Failing to put on your seat belt because you want to feel comfortable will simply expose you to serious fractures and multiple injuries when you’re being caught up in a road accident.

Forget about feeling comfort and put on your seat belt! You don’t want to sustain either deep nor multiple fractures—so you have to practice wearing your seat belts always.

  1. Poor Law Enforcement

Police officials will arrest drivers who fail to wear their seat belts, but what about the passengers? Ideally, the passengers should also be arrested for not wearing their seat belt? This will ensure that both drivers and passengers put on their seat belt to ensure safety on the road.

The police officials should also desist from the practice of taking small bribes from drivers when they see them not putting their seat belts as well their passengers. Drivers are responsible for the live of the passengers so drivers should ensure that their passengers put on seat belts.

Distracted Driving: Sending Text Messages While Driving

Distracted Driving: Sending Text Messages While Driving

The evolution of smartphones has introduced a new way of communication into our social fabric. While people are just used to making phone calls when they want to connect with others, texting has become a social norm with the number of smartphone mobile messaging apps increasing.

Texting is a very good way of communication if you’re not able or do not want to talk to someone. But sending text messages while driving is very dangerous. Sending text messages while driving takes your focus off the driving and unto your phone, leading to what is called, “Distracted Driving.”

Distracted Driving is one of the major causes of road accidents. And sending text messages while driving using your phone is one of the major causes of distracted driving! Sending text messages while driving involves composing, reviewing, sending and answering text messages when you are busy driving!

The temptation comes in when close people message you.

Even though you know that it is dangerous to be sending text messages while driving, you resort to it. The key is to either put your phone off while driving or put the message notification off or install an app on your phone that helps to manage your test messaging while driving.

A research study conducted by the Malaysian Institute of Safety Research (MIROS) among 300 respondents revealed the following causes of distracted driving with regards to using smartphones:

  • 43% of road users use mobile phones while driving
  • 7% of drivers receive phone calls at least one to three times per week
  • 53% of drivers use their mobile phones when they are being caught up traffic jams.
  • 53% of drivers resort to sending text message while driving.

That simply means 53% of drivers are risking their lives to road accidents while driving. Distracted driving can lead to many fatal accidents which can take lives. The key is to maintain good smartphone practices while driving by silencing your notification and desist from texting.

Message back to people who send you text messages when you are done driving! Remember you can’t afford to lose your life just because of one single text message.
