Idd Amin while President stopped heavy trucks from traveling at night. To-day, many deals are done at night. Talk of those who ferry what is illegal, like timber, charcoal, name it; yet Traffic Police is not that active at night. It may not be possible to stop heavy trucks moving at night, but the fact is, there is a serious problems. Many drivers complain about the long distance drivers, who more often than not even sleep while on steering. On the Entebbe Highway, where the wife of Nyombi Tembo met her untimely death, it is very common on daily basis to see trucks carrying sand meant for two trips just once. So, when one goes to collect the sand, he brings a badly loaded truck, off loads some and continues with the balance to the site where he is supposed to deliver! Mean while, the traffic personnel see this every day but have not done a thing to see it stop, but in case of an accident, they are fast to act! Uganda needs much more. Either many road users (drivers) don't measure up, or there is another problem. it disturbs the rate at which many drivers keep using mobile phones while driving. William Kituuka Kiwanuka
