RVTTI Administration  is glad to have hosted  a four day Road Safety Mainstreaming Training  from 16th-19th February 2021. The training was held in RVTTI Seminar Rm 1. The facilitators of the training were  Isaac Kibet, Cyprian Michieka and Mr Ezekiel Koech the  Regional Manager, NTSA North Rift region. The meeting was officially opened by Deputy Principal  Administration, Madam F. Mossop.

Each year over 3000 Kenyans lose their lives through road traffic crashes and thousands are left with injuries and disabilities. Over half of those killed are pedestrians, cyclists, motor cycle, riders and passengers in public transport. Most of those who lose their lives are in their productive age group between 15-29 years. Therefore there is need to develop behavior and attitudes that enhance Road safety for all Road users.

The training covered  Road safety in Kenya, Road crash Risk factors ,Road safety mainstreaming, Road safety interventional areas, The Role and Mandate of a Road Safety Committee (RSCs), Road Safety Policy Guidelines, Conducting road safety training and sensitization as well as Policy development among other key areas.

Deputy Principal Academics , Madam Janet Otieno  during the official closing remarks challenged the Committee to consider sensitizing our students on Road safety and to discourage the habit of using one Boda Boda for 3 or more persons as that exposes them to many risks.
