How terrible...why can't we just put in a road and drive sensibly? It's not like any of these animals are small and couldn't be seen!

Speed bumps won't make any difference we have loads of them and people just drive the same.

Humans have to respect all lives & drive accordingly in these areas. We share the road with wildlives. Thanks Jill.

Brilliant. They basically made a drag racing track straight through one of the few areas where endangered species live. How many animals have to get killed by cars before this is addressed? F**king geniuses.

Maybe flyovers or underpasses in areas with high wildlife movement could be the answer. It seems to work in other countries, at least it would reduce the killing significantly.

Noted. How difficult is it for people to slow down when they see an animal on the road? Maybe that is too hard for these people to do.

This is so sad, we share this earth with the animals and we need to do a better job of caring for them, they are not disposable.

So sad and unneccessary. All roads should be built with passages underneath for wildlife. Man is so greedy.

it is sad that such wildlife are not well considered during such projects. Road bumps may not be a permanent solution but it would be a start to saving wildlife. To help, traffic laws also need to be enforced on all roads - a serious problem in Kenya with all the corruption.
