Bethel | 95timefm


Police have announced a major crackdown on errant boda boda cyclists in a bid to bring sanity on Ugandan roads.

In a statement by the Traffic Police spokesperson, ASP Faridah Nampiima, boda boda cyclists account for the biggest number of accidents on Ugandan roads and this has necessitated the move to reign in on them.

She noted that the boda boda cyclists will be targeted specifically during the operations to enforce wearing of reflector jackets, crash helmets, carrying more than one passenger and third party insurance among others.

The development comes on the backdrop of a directive by the Speaker of Parliament, Antia Among the police to help curb cases of indiscipline on the road by boda boda cyclists.
