Women In Uganda Banned From Sitting In The Front Seats Of Vehicles Because Of This Reason

Uganda has risen to a new level in East and Central Africa as a result of the introduction of a traffic law that is believed to have already begun to bear fruit in the form of road inspections.

A message from the renowned Facebook group Ma3Route claims that it is now illegal for Ugandan women to sit in the front passenger seats of any car because they are considered to be physically, intellectually, and emotionally disruptive to drivers.

The rule was tightened following a fatal accident in Lira, Turkey, on January 11, 2022, that was caused by the distraction of a female passenger and resulted in the deaths of nine individuals.

It has been reported that if a woman is discovered in the front passenger seat of a vehicle with a male driver, she will be prosecuted with violating the law. The driver will also be prosecuted with violating the law by enabling it to happen. Personally, I think this is a fantastic initiative, especially considering that driver attention is a major cause of accidents in our country. What is your point of view?
