You are more likely to die on Nairobi's Outering Road than on any other road in the city, latest data from the National Transport and Safety Authority shows. 

According to the survey, Outering Road is the riskiest road in Nairobi where at least 44 people died in road crashes in 2021.

Waiyaki Way takes the second spot as the riskiest, accounting for 38 deaths in 2021. 

Mombasa Road comes third, with the survey showing 29 people perished on the road over the same period.

The data did not, however, indicate who among drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and pedal cyclists accounted for the most fatalities.

Thika Superhighway came in as the seventh most dangerous having claimed 25 lives. It was followed by Kangundo Road where 23 lives were lost while Ngong Road claimed 22 lives.
