SLS student needs votes to win in a global ideas competition

First year SLS student, Ngatia Muhoya, has submitted an idea about Road Safety titled “A new way to desseminate Road Safety information” on an innovation forum Making All Voices Count: A Grand Challenge for Development.


Ngatia is proposing for the development of an application that is interactive and fed by content provided by the ministry of transport.


According to him, in order to promote further understanding of the laws, rules regulations and matters concerning road safety, trivial questions will be administered through the application to ensure the user is engaged and evaluated. Simulated scenarios aided by short tutorials will be used to enhance the educational experience. The driving curriculum used by the government remains vastly unknown, only driving school and authority figures in government and the police have substantial know how of legislation concerning road usage.


When learners/drivers are provided with per-coded in app scenarios that can be updated as the law develops, they will be able to see and appreciate the laws governing road usage. Thus the app could create a deeper understanding of the laws of the road and hence more people will adhere to them. Where policing and speed cameras have failed this app could work in curbing road carnage.


Ngatia is looking for your votes to win the competition and get a chance to implement his idea. To vote for him, kindly click on this link – http://bit.ly/1cZflrh.
