Motorists who are fond of committing minor traffic offenses such as exceeding the speed limit or not putting on their seat belts will now be able to pay instant fines that range between Ksh500 to Ksh10,000.
You will not longer be arrested or have your vehicle towed to a police station. Instead of heading to court, you will pay an instant fine through mobile money then get a standard receipt. The rules have been drafted by NTSA and the body will introduce around 300 officers to assist in enforcement.
If you deny the charges, then you will get a date with the traffic court.
