At the sensitisation held on Wednesday at Mukwano Round About Junction, a number of cyclists participated and received free jackets and road safety posters since most accidents victims hospitalised are boda boda riders and pedestrians.

ASP Matthias Okwir, the National Traffic Liaison officer, called upon all the cyclists to master all the road signs as one of the most influential ways of reducing road accidents.


“I would like to take this opportunity to warn all those drivers who are using fake driving permits that this time, we have received more gadgets from ministry of Works which are going to enable us to detect all fake permits,” Okwir stated.


Okwir further called upon everyone to take charge in enforcing road safety guidelines and not leave the duty to only police officers since they can’t be everywhere.


Babra Mwanje, the Regional Manager for Uganda Helmet Vaccine Initiative, remarked that they have started with giving all those boda boda riders free jackets and they are expecting to educate the cyclists on other requirements like PSV and permits which many always take for granted.
