The proprietor of San Diego Driving School, San Diego Gorilla Safaris/Tours & Travel & San Diego Motel in Mbarara city western Uganda, Mr. Mugisha Majid Amon has challenged the government and other stakeholders to extensively deal with the quality of training and skills acquired by drivers across Uganda and fight fake licenses as the effective measures to avoid or minimize traffic accidents.

In an exclusive interview with RISE NEWS UGANDA’s Aaron Ainomugisha, Mugisha who is a professional driver and tours & travel expert stressed that the Ministry of Works and Transport should work jointly other stakeholders to scrutinize the licenses held by driving schools and drivers since some are fake, ensure quality training of drivers, professionalize traffic police, among other interventions to prevent road accidents.

Asked about the recent directive by President Museveni banning roadblocks on highways following concerns that they delay cargo transportation, Mugisha said police is important on roads but many roadblocks are unnecessary.

The 2021 Uganda Police Annual Crime Report indicates that there was a 42% increase in the number of crashes from 12,249 in 2020 to 17,443 in 2021. Over 3,000 crashes were fatal, and 4,616 survived with minor injuries. On average, Uganda loses approximately 10 people per day due to road crashes.
