The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has handed over safety enforcement equipment worth Sh165 million to the National Police Service.

Seventy breathalyzers, 55 speed cameras, 12 BMW motorcycles and 200 enforcement gadgets connected to the NTSA databases were handed over at their headquarters in Upper Hill, Nairobi.

Director General Francis Meja said that the authority has handed over the equipment in order following a presidential directive for the NTSA to stop their enforcement activities and to leave the roads.

He said that they will focus more on civil education to ensure motorists change their behaviour on the roads.

Last year, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered NTSA off the roads saying traffic matters should be handled by the traffic department.

The order came after motorist complained of high-handedness of some NTSA officials.
