Safe Transport in Africa is a challenge

www.fco.gov.ukTravel advisory on Uganda

  • By far the biggest hazard you will encounter in Uganda is travelling on the roads.  Driving standards are low, vehicles are often poorly maintained and the accident rate is high… Common forms of public transport are matatus and boda-bodas (scooter taxis), …if doing so you should select a vehicle that appears in good condition, consult other passengers and if using a boda-boda always wear a crash helmet.

Road Safety: has been ignored

as an African Policy Issue

  • But Road safety is highly relevant to key priorities of today’s global policy agenda. Road safety is about all of the following:
  • Partnership and international cooperation –
  • Developing international standards
  • Good governance and rule of law – avoiding corruption especially in enforcement agencies and respecting rights of other road users.
  • Public health and humanitarian assistance
  • Promoting sustainable development and the MDGs

NMT characteristics in Africa
  • Few dedicated cycle lanes and pedestrian lanes are diminishing.
  • Vehicular traffic is the priority in the design and planning and not NMT
  • Planners and Policy makers are concerned with traffic flow

Creating Vaccines for Roads - iRAP

Building on successful programmes in the EU, USA,

and Australia, iRAP is an innovative and transparent

system of road inspection to encourage governments

to apply safer road design countermeasures that

promote self-explaining and forgiving roads. It has

run pilot projects in Chile, Costa Rica, Malaysia

& South Africa showing positive cost benefit ratios.
