Instant fines for traffic offences to take effect in 30 days


Interior CS Fred Matiang’i on Wednesday said the instant fine for motorists who flout traffic rules will take effect in the next one month.

The High court had on Tuesday dismissed a suit seeking to block the penalties ranging from Sh500 to Sh10,000.

The case, filed by employees of the Kenya National Union of Co-operatives, sought to have the rules nullified and police stopped from applying them.

Matiang’i, while opening the national policing conference at the Kenya School of Government, said the new rule will be of convenience to the judicial processes.
