2015 - Uganda - Road Management System and Road Safety in Uganda

Traffic collisions cost Uganda millions of dollars each year. The purpose of this
descriptive case study was to describe the strategies and processes needed to implement a
road management system. Such a system would significantly reduce the fatalities and
accidents in Uganda, improve the transportation within Kampala’s business district, and
increase business profitability. Three conceptual theories framed the research study:
management theory, strategic management theory, and criminology theory. Using a
snowball sampling strategy, data were collected from open-ended interviews,
questionnaires, observations, and archived documents from 20 administrative participants
in the government and organizational leaders involved in the transport operations and
transport services in the Kampala business district in Uganda. Data were analyzed using
3 phases: (a) interpretational analysis, coding, and grouping segments; (b) structural
analysis, consistency, and quality; and (c) reflective analysis, consequences, what, when,
where, and how. Five themes or action requirements emerged from the data analysis: to
improve transport operations and transport services profitability, reduce traffic jams and
fatalities, provide sufficient driving training, maintain road infrastructure, and maintain
traffic law enforcement. The findings and recommendations from this study may
improve the profitability of businesses, reduce the traffic jams and fatalities, and improve
the gross domestic product of Uganda, thereby contributing to positive social change.
