According to the Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, the Traffic Enforcement Team at Buloba had intercepted an unidentified driver in a Mark X car that was numberless at the checkpoint after he had failed to stop at Bujuuko and got involved in a minor accident with a taxi Toyota registration number UBA681T.
