Road Accidents

By a female, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of ROAD ACCIDENTS Roads at our place were the most feared thing at our home. This is because so many lives had been lost already. When crossing there was great need to be keen in order to cross the road with no vehicle passing But the risks were when the kids were going to school. At our home area the used to be a road that connected pumwani and starehe school. But But you see the road was quite wide so cross was a bit slow. Pupils used to attend schools around there like st. brigit muslims and others. They first had to cross but it was indeed a process. So one day some kids (two) left home for school and wave their mothers good bye for the day. As they were crossing they were that keen enough and so the got hit by a lorry. It was such a accident since their body separated. It was not the only case reported it was discivered that many accidents had already accured before. So they had to do something. So the school of sterehe boys decided together with the parent all over to contruct a brodge that will help children from and to school to cross easily and with o complications To be honest this was a ease for all since everybody hoped for the best.
