In January, President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered that all NTSA officers be withdrawn from Kenyan roads.

The directive followed increased carnage on the road with President Kenyatta adding that traffic officers take over all duties that were allocated to NTSA.
Services they offer at the moment, according to their website include issuance of number plates, vehicle log books, driving licenses and booking of motor vehicle inspection.
Others include licensing of motor vehicles as well as legal, ICT and audit services.
