By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
Traffic Police have announced a move that will see an increase in operations and snap checkpoints on Uganda’s roads as the festive season nears in a bid to curb indiscipline by motorists.
The operations and snap checkpoints will be impromptu on several roads across the country.
According to traffic Police spokesperson, ASP Faridah Nampiima, they will strengthen their operations on overspeeding by using the already deployed speed guns on the road to ensure motorists drive within the prescribed speed limits.
Nampiima explained that at the snap checkpoints, they will step up operations against reckless driving and any other form of indiscipline on the road.
She noted that traffic police will also increase both foot and motorized patrols by officers on roads in another bid to check on indiscipline.
