Matatu Owners Association chairman Simon Kimutai has on Wednesday asked National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) to reconsider the night travel ban imposed on PSVs following rampant accidents last December.
Kimutai also wants the government to review the bans imposed on vehicles involved in road accidents as a way of curbing road carnage.
The government restricted PSVs to operate between 6 am and 7 pm after the death of 36 people in a road accident at Migaa near Salgaa blackspot on December 31, 2017.
“Most accidents involved commercial vehicles. The Ministry of Transport and NTSA should come up with a better solution other than banning night travels,” he said.
he further said the ban has seen the matatu industry incur huge losses.
