The Ghana Police Service has been charged to penalise a truck driver for reckless driving on the Accra-Kumasi Highway. A staff of the Ministry of Information, whose name is given as George Sarpong says the truck driver could have caused a terrible accident on that road along Kwahu Fodia.
This responsible citizen managed to take a picture of the truck while it wrongfully and dangerously overtook other heavily loaded trucks on the road. The distance between the truck and the vehicle in-bound [boarded by the public servant] was very close.
He indicated that the footage in his possession of the reckless and dangerous driving of the truck driver must be investigated and the driver made to face the full rigours of the law. In a letter addressed to the Ghana Police Service, and published on his Facebook wall, Mr Sarpong demanded the driver of the truck on that day [Thursday December 30, 2021] be called for interrogation.
"The driver literally pushed oncoming vehicles off the road, a situation that would have resulted in dire consequences for road users who were caught in this mess," he noted.
Complaints as Mr Sarpong scarcely gets the needed attention of the police. It is expected that the continued republication of this case will eventually get the Police to take action.
Given the detail and the personality involved as well as the rising cases of road carnage on the Accra-Kumasi Highway, George Sarpong could bet on his publication as getting the response it deserves. As he and other interested Ghanaians and actors await an action of the Police on the matter, other drivers who indulge in such deviance are urged to be disciplined on our roads.
Though CCTV installation in the cities might be missing on the highway and at other places, there are responsible Ghanaians who monitor and report on such cases on social media.
