They also painted a zebra crossing in Buwama town. Thereafter, they played a series of football matches involving four teams; USPA, Standard Chartered Bank, boda boda and taxi drivers.  

But the Bawuma –Kayabwe stage drivers defeated USPA 1-0 in the final to win a trophy that was handled to them by OC traffic Richard Wabwire.

City Tyres and Standard Chartered Bank have been the main sponsors of the campaign for the past ten years. KCCA FC and UNRA have also joined the campaign which began after four USPA executive members; Simon Peter Ekarot, Leo Kabunga, Kenneth Matovu and Francis Batte Jr. perished in a road accident in Lugazi in 2001.
