According to a message from a renown Facebook group Ma3Route, it is now a crime for Ugandan women to sit in the front passenger seats in any vehicle as they are said to be distracting drivers physically, mentally and emotionally.(Photo| courtesy)
The law was intensified after an accident that was caused by distraction from a female passenger in Lira on 11 January 2022 that claimed the lives of nine people.
It has been said that if a woman is found in the front passenger seat with the driver being a man, she will be charged for breaking a law. The driver will be also charged for allowing breaking of the law. Personally this is a very good move since driver distraction is also a cause of accidents in our country. What is your opinion?
