Dealing with Roads Carnage in Kenya: Sensor-driven Bumps


Kenyan roads are tombs. Hundreds of Kenyans died between Nairobi and Eldoret, Nairobi and Nyeri and Nairobi and Mombasa in the festive season of December.

Part of that problem is the drivers.

Partly, the roads are to blame.

Then there is the police.

Corrupt. Inept and simply incapable.

There is the whole morass of the driving licencing that needs a surgical overhaul.

Welcome to technology.

How have Road Bumps helped?

They cause more accidents because they are poorly designed, are too many and mostly not sturdy enough so they wear out.

How about some intelligent road bumps?

They are built into the roads. They have sensors for speed. If a car is speeding too fast, it rises to slow it down. If no speed breach is noticed, it is a smooth road!
