Kenya is set to launch biometric driving licenses which also store driver data by this summer.The biometric licenses, to be launched on 1 July, will store fingerprint and facial data as well as ID numbers and details of any traffic violations."We take road safety very seriously. As a country, we talk about road crashes as statistics, but the number can never tell the full story and loss felt by victims and their families," Cabinet Secretary for Transport Michael Kamau, said on 2 March, reported The Star.Traffic police will also be given equipment to read the licences.Last year, Kenya also touted plans to introduce a new generation of vehicle registration plates fitted with microchip technology – these are also due to be implemented by July.
