The amended traffic and road safety act requiring health facilities to compulsorily provide care to accident victims will become operational within six months.
According to the minister of works and transport, the new law brings into effect several reforms and penalties for which the government needs ample time to sensitise the public.
The Authorities hope that tougher punishments like an automatic 10-year jail term for those found guilty of causing a fatality shall act as a deterrent to bad driving practices and curb the rate of road carnage in Uganda.
