Safewayz is using blockchain applications to Make Kenyan Roads Safe

Safewayz Company has developed a blockchain application that seeks to capture, process, manage and host traffic rules violation data.

According to Safewayz co-founder, Fred Gatiramu,  when he did the research he found that driver behaviour contributes to 8 out of 10 accidents of road accidents in the country.

“In areas where there are police or speed cameras which means driver behaviour is being monitored accidents on that stretch of the road are minimal.”

Studies have shown that over 80% of road accidents are attributable to driver behaviour and errors such as speeding, distracted driving, reckless driving and driving under the influence (risky driver behaviour)

The Safewayz project will be tailored to address driver behaviour through a cloud chased database that will be accessible to all road users through capturing, sending reports on traffic violations to Incidence Centers and permanent storage of raw data.

This data will be shared with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) and any other interested parties.
