Boda boda awareness Jan 16, 2015
'Boda bodas" as they are known in Uganda, are motorcycles used for public transportation.Boda bodas are the most common used means of public transport next to Matatus/taxis.
They are easily accessed,comfortable(most of the times!) and they help avoid the hectic Kampala traffic(if you have been to Kampala, you know what I am talking about). They are also very affordable (depending on your bargaining skills)
However, they are the NO 1 cause of road accidents. Every year over 4,000 people die from boda boda related accidents.
So while in towns, whether you are walking or driving, forget the 'look left,look right, then look left again' rule, because boda bodas come from any direction. So just be on the look out, and remember to always wear helmets while riding on one.
Otherwise stay safe!
