“In this training, drivers will learn new road signs and sign posts that they were not well conversant with, they will be lectured on first aid, obeying road traffic rules and the ethics of driving,” Zziwa explained.

He further revealed that they have so far trained over 5000 drivers and it has come to his note that many of the drivers were on the road driving without driving permits and experience which has led to an increasing death rate in the country as a result of road accidents.

The drivers to be trained include; those who drive buses and taxis in the country and the training aims at enlightening them on road signs and ensuring discipline.

Isa Nsubuga, one of the drivers who attended the training, says that the programme is good because drivers need to learn more of the road signs and identify themselves since they will be given uniforms and badges.

Erias Twebembire, a driver in Gaga company, says that this study is beneficial to the country because it is likely to reduce on road accidents because drivers have been taught road signs, traffic signs, arm signs, lane control signals and motor way signs, among others.

The ministry of Works set December 1, 2013 as the deadline for these drivers to have gone back for re-training.
