— Do not be afraid to start Small.

If you want to actualize your dreams, you must learn the art of getting up from comfort zone and take action — and then the art of starting with what you have and from where you are. Yes, you should adopt the art of thinking globally but start locally!

If you wait until you have all the money and resources you need to launch your dream, you will stand three forms of probabilities;
1. You may totally fail to start.
2. You may delay to start and a person with the same idea will launch before you do.
3. You may end up eating up your capital and give up eventually.

So, learn to breakdown your dream into small workable plans that can be handled one small at a time. Statistics have it that most people that start with little capital are usually more successful than those who started with a lot of capital.

At Edgeworth Road Safety Training Centre we are ready to set the trend in Road Safety Education ,Training, Awareness and campaigns to make your lives a priority while you are on the road .
Let safety on the road be part of your daily meal .

What does that road sign mean 🤷?.....
It means overtaking is prohibited for four wheeled vehicles (hii ndio road sign ya continuous yellow line)

What does that continuous yellow line mean🤷?....
1It means don't overtake ‼️.
2 Danger ‼️.
3 It acts like a wall ‼️.
4 It prohibits you from crossing it ‼️.
5 It reminds you to stick to your lane ‼️.

Solution/ conclusion
Both the road sign and road marking means don't overtake ‼️

Remember ‼️
This is the only road marking which separate the LIVING and the DEAD ‼️.



Driving with your hazard lights on can pose a risk to other motorists on the road. When your hazard lights are activated, your turning signal is disabled, making it difficult for other drivers to anticipate your lane changes or turns. And they will not be able to determine if your vehicle is stopped or in motion. Turn on your headlights instead for more visibility.


Parking of the vehicle.-

(1) Every driver of a motor vehicle parking on any road shall park in such a way that it does not cause or is not likely to cause danger, obstruction or undue inconvenience to other road users and the manner of parking is indicated by any sign board or markings on the road side, he shall park his vehicle in such manner.

(2) A driver of a motor vehicle shall not park his vehicle:-
(i) at or near a road crossing, a bend, top of a hill or a humpbacked bridge;
(ii) on a foot-path;
(iii) near a traffic light or pedestrian crossing;
(iv) in a main road or one carrying fast traffic;
(v) opposite another parked vehicle or as obstruction to other vehicle;
(vi) alongside another parked vehicle;
(vii) on roads or at places or roads where there is a continuous white line with or without a broken line;
(viii) near a bus stop, school or hospital entrance or blocking a traffic sign or entrance to a premises or a fire hydrant;
(ix) on the wrong side of the road;
(x) where parking is prohibited;
(xi) away from the edge of the footpath.

Otherwise be ready to jump with traffic fines .


Always Use Your Indicator Lights:

There is nothing more frustrating for other drivers than someone who doesn’t use their indicator light to alert them of their intentions – by letting other drivers know what you are about to do, you help everybody avoid accidents.

Try to make a habit of using your indicators even when there is nobody else on the road. You never know if there is a car or a pedestrian that you haven’t seen – and developing the habit means that using your indicators will quickly become second nature.


Moving off unsafely

On your driving test, your driving examiner will ask you to pull up on the left-hand side of the road several times. The examiner will ask you to move off again once it’s safe to do so. If you move off in an unsafe manner, you won’t pass your driving test.

Typical faults include failing to check your blind spots, incorrect use of a signal and misjudging the speed of following vehicles.
The blind spot is the final check of anything near you on the road just before you move away, whether setting off from the left or the right hand side of the road. 🚘


Texting while driving is one of the most dangerous decisions you can make when you're behind the wheel. If you have a message that just can't wait, take a few extra seconds to pull off the road and park in a safe spot.


Going Over The Speed Limit.
Speed limits aren’t there to restrict drivers, they’re there to prevent accidents. When you’re speeding, it will be harder to stop for something unexpected. Braking all of a sudden is also dangerous for you, pedestrians, and other drivers, too.

This is why those speeding often hit trees or go off the road when trying to avoid something.

Take note of speed limits in certain zones, as well. In a school zone, for example, the speed limit may be anywhere from 15 mph to 30 mph.


Having rifht of way doesnt mean driving straight.

Exercise patience and apply defensive driving skills to avoid the unthinkable.

Observe road signs and follow traffic rules. Even if when you know you have all the right to proceed observe other road users.


Just like SOME RELATIONS were NEVER meant to LAST, so are your CAR TYRES…!

Change your tyres as soon as they begin to wear out.

The danger is that - worn out tyres are more susceptible to punctures, and they don’t have adequate tread depth to channel water from under the tread.

Which means that, when it rains, you may lose traction and control over your vehicle).


As road traffic crashes continue to escalate on our Ugandan roads , as a Road safety advocate, trainer and enforcer ...I have together with ROAD Safety TV-think Alive come up with an awareness campaign program ....."THE DRIVING PASS" episode coming up . Follow ,share and learn about safety of a road user. Together we can achieve vision zero to road traffic crashes. Stay tuned.


In traffic, the distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you is known as the ‘safe headway’. Keep a safe headway by ensuring you are at least two seconds behind the vehicle in front. This is known as the ‘two-second rule’.


Your position on the road 🚗

Driving in the correct position on the road is important for safety and helps traffic flow freely. In Uganda, you should normally keep to the left side of the road.

Make sure you don’t
* drive too close to the kerb, especially where there are pedestrians
* weave in and out between parked cars.

You mustn’t drive
* on the pavement
* on the hard shoulder of a motorway
* on a cycle or bus lane when it’s in operation.

Keep scanning the road ahead of you to see when you might need to change your position in the road, such as when there are roadworks or cars parked at the side of the road. Make sure you move in good time so road users behind you can see what you’re doing and that they may need to change their position too.🚗

When you need to change your road position, always make a routine to check
* ahead of you for road users coming towards you
* your mirrors and blind spots for vehicles behind or beside you.
Your position on the road can be affected by factors such as weather, road and traffic conditions. 🚗





From 16th - 23rd July 2023, a total number of 222 accidents of Boda Bodas were registered. Among these, 57 were fatal and 146 were serious. 19 passengers and 38 riders lost their lives, while 99 riders and 47 passengers were seriously injured.

The rising number of accidents involving Boda-Bodas is a serious challenge that demands immediate attention. As a result, we emphasize the following road safety tips for Boda-Bodas and passengers to help address this issue:

1. Helmets: Ensure all riders and passengers wear appropriate crash helmets for enhanced safety.
2. Reflective Jackets: Use reflective gears to increase visibility, especially during low-light conditions.
3. One Passenger Rule: Strictly adhere to carrying one passenger per ride to maintain stability and safety.
4. Riding Permits: All Boda-Boda operators must possess valid riding permits.
5. Sober Driving: Under no circumstances should riders operate while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

To combat the issue, the Directorate of Traffic & Road Safety has undertaken phase one of operations, targeting crash helmets and reflective jackets.

We are pleased to note that a good number of riders have responded positively to this awareness campaign.

However, we are now entering phase two of operations, focusing on riding permits. Any rider found without a valid permit will face legal consequences and will be taken to court. Sensitization efforts will continue, emphasizing the importance of helmets, reflective geagearnd valid permits for all Boda-Boda operators.

We also urge passengers to be vigilant and prioritize their safety when hiring a rider. Do not board a motorcycle without a helmet or a reflective jacket. Ensure your chosen rider possesses a valid permit for your protection.

To improve the overall safety of Boda-Bodas on the roads, the IOV (Inspectorate of Vehicles) has conducted rigorous testing, evaluating 1077 riders to ensure they meet the required standards.

We urge the public to report traffic violations to our Toll-free number: 0800199099



Its all about patience;
Its all about being a responsible driver;
Its all about being a disciplined driver ....
..................................................................................Rwandan driver of lorry involved in Londiani accident that killed 53, injured 25, arraigned; he faces 90 counts of reckless driving and property destruction.


The importance of wearing the right gear when walking and cycling. Fluorescent and reflective materials help drivers see you, and helmets protect your head.

In a car, only get out on the pavement side.
In a bus or coach or minibus, wear your seat belt if one is fitted. When getting off, never cross the road in front or behind the bus. Wait until it has pulled away so you can see in all directions.



The overtaking maneuver can be explained in two stages:

1. Do not begin an overtaking maneuver near the exit that you need to take. For example, there is no need to overtake at the junction leading to your house.
Any driving movement can be considered concerning the question “Is it safe, legal, and convenient?”

2. A decision to overtake should start with the question "Do I really need to overtake"?
There is often very little advantage to be gained for the risk taken!
Only after answering “YES” to the following questions should you start to overtake:

🚦Can I see far enough ahead to be sure it is safe?

🚦Can I overtake without affecting any other vehicles' position or speed?

🚦Am I able to pull back to my own side of the road in plenty of time after completing the maneuver?

🚦Can I abandon the overtaking maneuver if another hazard comes into view?

🚦Will I come into conflict with any other road user?

🚦Will I end up making the third line of vehicles abreast at any point during the maneuver?

🚦Will it be legal to overtake here?

With regular driving habits, you can process these thoughts within seconds.


Tailgating 📌

Tailgating is when a driver is driving behind another vehicle too closely, without leaving sufficient distance to stop without causing a collision.

There is a recommended safe following distance which varies with speed and is indicated by time: the four-second rule.

When it raining the distance should be more, for your own safety.
Some drivers can be very funny, this is example of what they cause after following bumper to bumper.


Road safety is each of us responsibility. Let's be their for the road safety run on 23rd/july/2023 starting from Nakasero primary school play grounds at 6am.



The Highway Code is the road user's guide and by keeping to the rules you
will contribute to keeping our roads safe and more pleasant for all.

It is often the smallest detail that gives the clue to what will probably happen.

Every traffic situation is unique therefore, a driver should be able to interpret
it correctly before making any maneuvers.

To 'hang back' is to follow at a safe distance the vehicle ahead which you
eventually intend to overtake when the road is clear. When in doubt, 'hang back'.

Good driving continually calls for the making of quick and correct decisions,
all of which must be carried out with care, especially when overtaking. Be
considerate to other road users.

It is not always safe to drive at the highest speed allowed, even though the
law permits you to do so. In some cases such a speed is dangerous. Only
unwise persons can drive fast enough to be dangerous.

Car sense is the ability to get the best out of your car; it entails smooth and
thoughtful operation of the controls with hands and feet. This can only be
reached if the operations are carried out in good time. Car sense adds to your

Use the horn to give a warning only. Use the signals given in the Highway Code.
An incorrect signal is misleading and always dangerous.

Before driving any vehicle get to know its capabilities and limitations.


The Highway Code urges all to be courteous, but a good driver goes further and
acknowledges the courtesies shown to him by every other road user.

Have a responsible driving attitude through out the weekend.

It may be a valid reason ,but the law knows only the actions.
It's clearly stated in the Traffic and road safety act that usage of your handheld mobile phone while driving contravenes the law purely finable .
It includes holding, listening, watching,texting or even changing position.
Otherwise you will be inviting a Traffic officer for lunch .


It's an offence.... carriage of goods for hire or reward to either yourself or another party when such kind of motor vehicle is not licenced to do so.

If you are doing this with such kind of suv (Motor vehicle)..... just know you are sending a friend request to a traffic officer.


Orange – Orange road signs are usually temporary signs relating to road work, temporary traffic control, and maintenance warnings. When you see orange road signs, be sure to watch for workers on or near the roadway.
Pay close attention whenever you see this.


Keeping a safe following distance while driving is key especially on the highways.

JUST IN: Its sad upon getting news of a fatal road traffic accident that has claimed the life of a Ugandan businessman Apollo Nyegamahe, popularly known as Aponye along the Kabale - Mbarara Highway near itojo hospital towards ntungamo.
May his soul rest in eternal peace .



A motor third party is insurance that protects you from the financial responsibility of causing damage or injury to others while driving a vehicle. It does this by helping you pay for the expenses of someone else whom you accidentally harmed or whose property you damaged with your vehicle.

For example. If you are driving your car and accidentally hit and damage someone else’s car, then Instead of paying for the repairs yourself, the insurance company will cover the costs to a certain extent, so you do not have to foot the entire bill. However, this only happens if you have third-party motor insurance.


By law, all vehicles apart from government vehicles must have this insurance which must be renewed every 12 months before it expires. For example, if your third-party motor insurance expires on 12th July, then you should renew it before end of day on 12th July otherwise you may be charged with driving a car without this insurance and you could face imprisonment for up to 2 years, a traffic penalty or both.

Remember when we talk about vehicles, we do not only mean only your car with four ‘tyres’. By law, a vehicle is something that moves on roads and can be powered by different things like animals on a carriage, machines, electricity, or other sources of power. This could therefore be a car or motorbike. Please note that a bicycle(kagaali) does not fall under this category.


Putting your child on your lap while driving is not love, STOP 🚫risking their lives.


🚦🚨Look out for pedestrian crossings, and for people who are mounting or dismounting from other vehicles. Slow down or stop near pedestrian crossings and give way to pedestrians.🚦🚨


Motorcycles can easily be hidden in a car’s blind spots because they are smaller in size. Take an extra moment to thoroughly check traffic when you’re changing lanes or turning at intersections.
Please slow down and look into your mirrors before turning.


Motorists will pay Shs2 million for speeding in a move intended to restore sanity on Uganda's roads.


1. Rear-end Collisions
Rear-end collisions are a common reason for auto insurance claims. Whether you are the driver who hits a vehicle in front of you, or the driver who gets hit by a vehicle behind you, these accidents can often be avoided. Consider these tips:

🚗🚛Keep your distance. Drive far enough behind the car in front of you so you can stop safely. This is especially true in inclement weather. Stay at least three seconds behind the vehicle ahead of you, and longer if you’re in a heavier vehicle. Extend the timing when weather conditions are bad.

🚘Drive strategically. Avoid situations that could force you to suddenly use your brakes. If a driver is following you too closely or isn’t paying attention, you might be rear-ended.

📵Don’t get distracted. Never take your eyes off the road to eat, read a text message or find your phone. If the driver ahead of you stops suddenly, it only takes a second or less of not paying attention to rear-end their vehicle.

❌Don't drive when drowsy or under the influence. You’re more likely to make driving errors when you’re sleepy or impaired by drugs or alcohol.


Using your indicator does not mean it is safe to change lanes - Give the proper signal and glance to make sure the move can be made safely.
Don’t do last-second lane changes or exits – you must plan your moves in time!
If you miss, don’t attempt to stop. It is safer to use the next available exit.




President Yoweri Museveni has assented to the Traffic and Road Safety Amendment Bill of 2023 which was recently passed by parliament.According to the Speaker of Parliament, Anita Among, this is one of the 6 Bills signed into law by the president.Under this Act which comes into force tomorrow July 1st, a person who fails to comply with a speed limit set under subsection (1) commits an offence and is liable, on conviction, to a fine not exceeding one hundred currency points (Shs 2 million) or imprisonment not exceeding three years, or both.


Dreams get shattered.

Sorrows brought to the family,friends and loved ones.

Money gone and spent on treating injuries or repairing damages.

This is what road accidents can do. It will take all of us to come together and deal with it.


Do seat belts really saves lives? Why do people find it inconveniencing to strap one on?

Sadly, we need to talk about them because unbelievably there are still people out there who don’t use them.

Unfortunately most of us only put on seat belts when the vehicle reminder keeps going off or when we see road traffic enforcement.

Seatbelts have saved an estimated 50 million lives in the last 40 years.

Thank you to the people who use them. You are probably as surprised as me as to why some still don’t. Or maybe not,because am also a culprit to sometimes forgetting to wear one.

Before you drive out today ,put that seatbelt on, it could save your life – or the life of someone you’re traveling with.



There are three terms we use when speaking of vehicle balance (load) ;

Pitch, Roll and Yaw

When a car is sitting still these do not come into play. When the car is in motion however, they play an integral part in what the vehicle does on the roadway

To safely transport

You must understand basic cargo safety rules.

If you load your cargo wrongly or do not secure it, it can be a danger to others and to yourself. Loose cargo that falls off a vehicle can cause traffic problems and others could be hurt or killed.

Loose cargo could hurt or kill you during a quick stop or crash. Your vehicle could be damaged by overload. Steering could be affected by how a vehicle is loaded, making it more difficult to control the vehicle.

Whether or not you load and secure the cargo yourself, you are responsible for:

1. Inspecting your cargo.
2. Recognizing overloads and poorly balanced weight.
3. Knowing your cargo is properly secured.

Inspecting Cargo

As part of your pre-trip inspection , make sure the truck is not overloaded and that the cargo is balanced and secured properly. Inspect the cargo and its securing devices again within 50km after beginning a trip. Make any adjustments needed. Check the cargo and securing devices as often as necessary during a trip to keep the load secure. A good habit is to inspect again:

1. After you have driven for 3 hours 200km
2. After every break you take during driving.

Weight and Balance

You are responsible for not being overloaded. Following are definitions of weights:

Gross vehicle weight (GVW) - Total weight of a single vehicle plus its load.

Gross combination weight (GCW) - Total weight of a powered unit plus trailer(s) plus the cargo.

Gross combination weight rating (GCWR) - Maximum GCW specified by the manufacturer for a specific combination of vehicles plus its load.

Axle weight - Weight transmitted to the ground by one axle or one set of axles.


If a traffic police officer 👮STOPS 🛑 you ,we want to make it very clear......YES it's a MUST for you to STOP ‼️.

Failure to comply amounts to an offence as per the Traffic and road safety act.


👀🚘Watch Out for the Other Guy

Sometimes, you could be driving as safely as possible, obeying all traffic rules and speed limits, and someone crashes into you. There’s nothing you can do about that.

When you’re driving, it doesn’t hurt to assume everyone else on the road is reckless. Be prepared for sudden stops, tailgating, swerving, unsignaled turns, and every other imaginable bad driving behavior. There’s a big chance you’ll eventually be right and it pays to be prepared.

Photos from ROAD Safety TV-think Alive's post 24/06/2023

Do not use your mobile device.

Seems like an obvious one, however, you’d be surprised how many of us fail to keep our mobile phones at bay whilst driving. And drivers using a mobile phone are four times more likely to crash their vehicle.

Mobile devices are one of the biggest distractions to drivers because they demand full attention: manual, visual, and cognitive, causing you to take your hands off the steering wheel, your eyes off the road, and your mind off the road.

If you happen to be a passenger in a moving vehicle operated by a distracted driver, you need to intervene as they are putting the occupants of the vehicle at a risk.
