A training took place in Entebbe that attracted over 100 boda boda operators who received tips on how to control road accidents, defensive riding, over speeding, avoiding drugs, and avoiding using phones while on the road. The operators were also told on how to use road signs.
15% of the Mulago Hospital budget goes towards boda boda accident victims – which means that the incidence of such accidents is still high. The training is meant to promote the use of helmets and to reduce traffic errors and offences committed by commercial riders.
