    Traffic chaos

    by K.Knight Written Oct 4, 2008

    As is the case in most of Africa, the drivers in Uganda seem to have a death wish!

    The roads are often dirt or mud and pot holes seem to be the only thing holding the road together. Even though the driving conditions are mostly on the dangerous side, you will often see trucks that are overloaded with either produce or, as you can see in this photo, other people!

    The roads are littered with trucks that have rolled, cars that have come to grief and others that have simply broken down or run out of petrol.

    You need to be very alert when driving in Uganda!
