This unique park managed by the Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) educates children about road safety with the aim of reducing traffic accidents in the city.
Many children die from hit and run accidents on our roads, especially on estate roads. According to the Kenya Traffic Police department it is estimated that 620 children under the age of 16 died from road accidents out of 2,907 road accident related deaths in 2014. Globally, over 500 children die daily because of road accidents while thousands are injured. The objective of this program is to make youngsters aware of the rules to be followed while crossing a road, zebra crossings and traffic signs.
Children are taught road awareness whilst they ride their bicycles and tricycles on miniature tarmac roads, complete with traffic lights and traffic signs.
The Children’s Traffic Park Program has been beneficial to more than 60,000 school going children in Nairobi since its inception and is a fun way to learn about road safety.
