He says the main offences which traffic police will be concentrating on include riding or being carried in a dangerous position on a motorcycle.

The penalty for this offence is Shs20, 000 while careless or inconsiderate use of a motorcycle will attract a Shs40, 000 fine.

“Carrying passengers on a motorcycle without an operator’s license (PSV) will attract a fine of Shs40, 000 and riding a boda boda in a dangerous mechanical condition will see the offender pay Shs50, 000,” notes Kaweesi.

The police boss also warns riding a motorcycle without a valid driving permit or insurance will cause a Shs40, 000 penalty.

“It is imperative that we immediately address this issue to ensure safety of motorcyclists, passengers and by-standers alike,” says Kaweesi.
