Ban Dangerous LEDs on Vehicles

This petition had 170 supporters

Today more and more Kenyan motorists are installing extreme bright LEDs that are meant for daylight visibility. 

However the net effect is that these have turned out to be death traps on our roads by blinding oncoming traffic. Without dimming option these lights blind even those with absolute good vision, not to mention the effect on those whose vision is less than perfect. 

Motorists using highways outside urban areas that are not lit bear the brunt of these lights as there are no street lights to counter the effect of the dazzling and blinding LEDs. 

While there is no official statistics to confirm fatalities arising from the use of these powerful LEDs, the rate at which most vehicles are being installed with these lights is almost at par with complaints. 

I seek your support to this petition to the National Transport and Safety Authority to legislate a standard regulating the use of these LEDs. 

You will agree with me that factory standard LEDs /Day driving lights are relatively safe even at night. It's this standard that I plead to be implemented to safeguard night time driving. 

Let's keep our roads safe, day or night.
