Accidents are common along the Nimule-Juba road. Several road users have often attributed the accidents to the absence of speed bumps and potholes.

Since its commissioning in 2012, USAID-grant funded 192-kilometre road has not had any major infrastructural upgrade. Arrangements are underway for the recovery of bodies and burial of the twelve affected persons.
