Overloading and accidents on our roads

SIR— The absence of traffic police along rural and urban routes is a contributing factor to the excessive loading of taxis and the consequent deaths in recent years.

SIR— The absence of traffic police along rural and urban routes is a contributing factor to the excessive loading of taxis and the consequent deaths in recent years. It is strange that at times this is done under the very nose of the Police. An example is the taxis which ply the Kibale-Kagadi route via Sunga Police Station. These cars with the authorised sitting capacity of five passengers do carry 10. Everyday, every five minutes, a taxi with this human load passes in front of Sunga Police Station as the officer in charge of traffic and his men watch. The Kyotera-Mutukula route is another notorious one. I appeal to the concerned authorities to save people from this means of travel and risky exposure to death.
