A new study conducted by Amend in Kenya shows astronomically high road traffic crash and injury rates among commercial motorcycle taxi drivers.
38% of drivers we interviewed had been involved in a crash within the last three months alone, and 62% of those who had experienced a crash sustained a bodily injury.
Motorcycle taxis are proliferating across Africa as a much-needed form of affordable public transport. But this important new form of mobility must be made safe.
