TitleModification of Road Infrastructure to Increase Driver Compliance in Uganda
AuthorDerek Friday
AbstractDeteriorating driver behaviour over the last decade is documented as the leading contributor to the increasing rate of accidents on roads in Uganda. Studies done in this area have blamed the bad driver behaviour to social norms and the loop holes in the safety regulation enforcement system to ensure driver compliance. Besides the social and regulatory environment, poor road infrastructure has had a great influence on the driver’s compliance levels in the country. It is probable to infer that the state of the road infrastructure is highly responsible for driver non compliance to safety regulations from this study’s findings. The inferences made in the paper are a result of the findings from data collected from 285 respondents comprising of traffic officers and analysed using SPSS. The study also critics the Risk Homoeostasis Theory and makes numerous contributions to theory, policy implications and recommendations to improve road safety.
