According to the general secretary for Uganda Bus Drivers and Allied Association, William Katende, drivers are to be blamed for the increasing accidents.


“They are the prime causers of accidents. Careless drivers, drunkard drivers and inexperienced drivers cause accidents most especially, during festive seasons because they have a desire to make a lot of profits,” Katende stated.


Katende advised drivers and boda boda riders to be very vigilant and careful when carrying people from one place to another for Christmas celebrations both in town and rural areas to avoid loss of lives.


He has also advised all road users to be careful when crossing the roads.


“All stakeholders like National Roads Council, Roads Authority and Traffic Police should make sure that during this festive season, all drivers and passengers travelling tie belts and boda boda riders put on helmets to avoid registering more accidents this season.


This comes at a time when police have already arrested a number of bus drivers for over speeding in a bid to grab more passengers and make more money.
