Abstract

In Côte d'Ivoire, law n°. 92- 469 of 30 July 1992 condemning the use of butane gas fuel for vehicles by imprisonment of fifteen days to one year and / or a fine of 100,000 to 500,000 CFA francs. Notwithstanding this provision, many taxis in some of our cities feed by butane gas. This is the case of Bouaké where over 90% of communal taxis use gas subsidized by the State and for households to replace conventional fuel. This practice that thrives in Bouaké in an environment marked by a crisis of governance has a significant impact on the local economy, the living conditions of the people and more about their health because of the risk of fire and explosion of this highly flammable fuel. The purpose of this contribution is to insist once again on disorderly practices that prevail in the capital of Gbêkê and expose people to social vulnerability and significant health risks.
