This week we took a little two-day break away and I did my share of driving – still gaining confidence driving on Ugandan roads. With Dan as my instructor/critique, here are the top three tips I could now pass on:
- Always drive in the middle of the road; only go to your side when another car is coming.
- “The horn is your friend” – Dan’s words exactly. Honk, and people and motorbikes will get out of your way.
- Never swerve for an animal. Goats, chickens, etc, no swerving. But if it’s a cow, then don’t drive straight into it, try and hit it at an angle.
