Hundreds of road users were Sunday morning arrested by National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officials along the Malindi-Kilifi highway for flouting traffic rules.

Motorcycle riders who helped matatu operators carry excess passengers past the NTSA roadblock were cornered and arrested.

Among those arrested in the NTSA crackdown were drivers of public service and private vehicles, conductors of public vehicles, and passengers.

The passengers will be charged with boarding overloaded vehicles.

NTSA Deputy Director for Safety Enforcement and Accident Investigations Hared Adan led the crackdown.
