Each year, an estimated 1.35 million people are killed on the worlds’ roads, and a further 50 million are injured, with the vast majority of these (over 90 percent) occurring in LMICs. There is an upward trend in road crash fatalities and injuries, causing human suffering, grief, and loss, and retarding the economic growth of LMICs.

Every year more than 600 people are killed along this stretch as a result of regular and high frequency of accidents thus raising concern among residents and the country what exactly is causing the frequency of accidents (CITIZEN, 2015)

Improvements have been made to the road section in the study area to reduce if not eliminate loss of life, most notably by changing the road design, provision of road signs and road markings.
