Abstract: The purpose of the study was to establish the effect of commercial cyclists training on reduction of road traffic accidents among commercial cyclists in Kampala Uganda. Three specific objectives guided this study and these were; investigating the effect of road safety training on reduction of cyclists head on road traffic accidents in Kampala Central division; ii) assessing the effect of traffic-signal training on reduction of motor vehicle road traffic accidents in Kampala Central division and examining the effect of multi-laned road use training on reduction of cyclist pedestrian road traffic accidents in Kampala Central division. Descriptive design was used to describe the effect between variables. The study used a population of 38,020 and a sample size of 395. Questionnaires were used for reaching respondents who were randomly selected to be part of the study and the data collected was organized and analyzed to generate information which came from the field. Regression analysis was used to analyze the data on all the study objectives. The findings revealed the following; road safety training as a commercial cyclists training strategy influences the road accidents among commercial cyclists in Kampala Uganda, traffic-signal training of commercial cyclists significantly affects the reduction of motor vehicle – cyclists road traffic accidents among commercial cyclists in Kampala Uganda, and multi-laned road use training significantly affects the reduction of cyclist – pedestrian road traffic accidents in Kampala Central division Uganda. The conclusions were that; providing road safety training can lead to reduction on the rate of road traffic accidents and increases the behaviour of commercial cyclists while on the road, road traffic accidents can be reduced once first aid training is effectively done, provision of traffic-signal training of commercial cyclists can lead to the reduction on reduction of road accidents, and although multi-laned road training has a significant effect on reduction of road accidents in Kampala Central division Uganda, there are major weaknesses of multi-laned road training for example temporally failure to use effective multi-laned road training due to traffic lights’ disconnection and failure. The recommendations were that; in respect to objective one on the road safety training on reduction of road traffic accidents. In respect of the above conclusions, Kampala Capital city authority should further empower the commercial cyclists by developing teams and give some measure of power and authority to these teams. In this way, commercial cyclists will ignite their potentials, feel part of the system and do their work effectively. Regarding objective two, the researcher recommends that there is need with immediate effect to improve the practice of first aid training, hence the government should advocate for better BodaBoda training that suite different situations on the road.
