Road Accident

Women Banned From Occupying Front Seats in Trucks

It might seem hilarious how female traders are accused of facilitating road accidents despite them being on their routine businesses. It has now emerged that authorities in Uganda have banned businesswomen from sitting in driver’s cabins as a move to minimize road accidents caused by tracks.

According to a popular news site in Uganda, “The Monitor,” the decision was reached after a grisly road accident that happened on 19th January 2022, killing nine people in Lira City. Women traders are blamed for being indirectly responsible for the accidents for their indecent dressing, drawing away concentration of drivers, and the authorities said it had been a norm in the region, making it a major road hazard.

Different netizens had different opinions concerning the issue, some saying drivers should take responsibility for their reckless driving others commended the move. What is your take on this? Should the same be applied in Kenya? Drop your comments below. (Source; The Monitor :
