Most roads in Uganda are single carriageway. Travelers may encounter road conditions that greatly differ from those in their home countries like roads having pot-holes, murrum or feeder roads e.t.c. The fact that the country is colonized by the British, driving is on the left hand side of the road. The roads are normally busy with heavily loaded big trucks, speeding big buses, minibuses (locally known as matatus), motorbike taxis (locally known as boda-bodas), pedestrians, bicycles and livestock (cows, goats, sheep). In case of an accident whilst on the road, the driver may drive to the nearest police station due to fear of mob anger.
