REPORT: Kampala to Mbale road safety walk 2023

More than 12 people are killed per day in road traffic crashes in Uganda, translating to more than 4,534 deaths annually. The majority of the victims are pedestrians and bodaboda riders. Traffic officers attribute many of these deaths and injuries to the careless road behaviour of riders, cyclists and drivers. These fatalities and injuries can be reduced greatly if awareness is constantly created and if the state of the roads are improved.

This is why Joseph Beyanga aka Joe Walker, has been on a mission since 2018 to get the stakeholders involved, to play their part, using the Joe Walker and Friends road safety campaigns.

From the interactions with people along the way and what the Joe Walker team was able to observe, below is a summary of the recommendations on what can be done to improve road safety.

• Teach the Road and Traffic laws and guidelines to children to instill road discipline at an early age.

• Install appropriate road signage and have inbuilt enforcement structures on the roads.

• Have clear leadership structures and systems for all public transport sectors.

• Review and standardise the process and cost of driving permits for both cyclists and drivers.

• Provide strict measures to enforce speed limits especially in urban settlements.
