Speed Cameras Erected on the Nairobi Expressway

The Nairobi Expressway management company has installed speed cameras along the expressway to deter drivers from overspeeding. Motorists caught speeding will only be permitted to exit the elevated route once cleared by traffic police officers stationed at exit points. 

Speed cameras spotted along Westlands-Museum hill area 

On Monday, November 14, Moja Expressway Head of Public Relations, Jeanne May Ongiyo, confirmed to Kenyans.co.ke that automated speed cameras had been installed at several spots along the Nairobi Expressway. Ongiyo added that the initiative was by the National Police Service (NPS) traffic department to reduce speeding on the 27-kilometer flyover.

Three cameras are installed on one of the street lights poles, as seen in a picture taken by drivers along the Westlands – Museum hill area. A sticker indicating the suggested speed limit, and an electronic display showing the speed recorded by the guns, are located on a lower electronic board. Any number inside the speed limit is shown in green, while any number above is indicated in red. The Nairobi Expressway’s top speed restriction is 80 kilometers per hour.

The decision to install speed monitors on the 27 km stretch garnered varied reactions. Some Kenyans applauded the initiative since it removed the burden of proof necessary to penalize violators.

The recent changes coincided with an increase in speeding incidents on the Nairobi Expressway reported in recent months. Speeding was cited as one of the primary factors in road accidents in the country by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA). 

According to the Traffic Act, anyone found guilty of violating the standards for speed restrictions will be fined or put on trial. Multiple convictions call for at least a three-year license suspension.
