Here’s how to solve traffic congestion

The fact is that Kampala has more vehicles than it can handle. Like any other developing country, proposed solutions to congestion could include:
A complete facelift of the rail sector to make trains more attractive to the masses, working class and upcountry commuters.
Get another loan from the World Bank to build at least 10 sky scrapers to be used as parking lots and then ban street parking because it crowds the roads.
Every commercial building must have parking space for at least 200 vehicles depending on its size.
Construct fly-overs and interchanges. Ghana would be a good case study. Whereas these ease traffic flow, parking remains a nightmare.
There must be as many bus stop terminals as possible to avoid on and off passenger loading on main roads.
