Accidents
Accidents are the most important cause of disability and death in travellers often related to alcohol.

To prevent accidents: 

  • make sure that the car you use are in good mechanical order and has an experienced and sober driver;
  • do not drive longer distances after dark;
  • do not go swimming or driving after drinking alcohol;
  • avoid so called "bush taxis", which usually are extremely overloaded and in poor mechanical condition.
