President cautions against over speeding, sends Christmas wishes

24 December 2014, 12:41 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - President Yoweri Museveni has cautioned Ugandans against risking their lives and those of their loved ones through over speeding during the festive season.

“Dear Ugandans, I greet you all. On December 31, I will deliver my New Years address with more details. I however wish you a Merry Christmas. Please do so carefully.

''For those travelling upcountry, don’t over speed. Personally I never go beyond 100km per hour on a good tarmac road and I don’t go beyond 80km per hour on a murram road; don’t over speed. Don’t risk your lives and the lives of your loved ones this festive season,” he said in a short and crisp message to Ugandans.

The President's message comes after Police deployed more traffic personnel on the roads and warned against drunk-driving and over speeding.

Over 1093 traffic officers and non-uniformed police have been deployed at different spots along highways and other roads in the country to check on the increasing accidents as the festive season sets in.

It is common for accidents to occur on highways during Christmas season because most of the town dwellers in the country travel to their ancestral homes up country.

Buses and taxis ply the highways on high speed so they could make more money by making as many trips as possible.
