Ssezibwa Regional Police this month deployed a scarecrow on deadly Mabira forest black spots along Kampala-Jinja highway.
The giant Scarecrow of a traffic officer seated on a traffic motor-bike is shifted in various spots to scare speeding drivers.
This innovation worked for the first days as drivers were caught unaware and hence reduced speed.
Unfortunately, there is no response from police.
I do not expect such scarecrows to track down offending drivers especially in hit and run accidents. Therefore, traffic officials shouldn’t deploy mere scarecrows to do their work.
