Road Accident

Our roads still killing our people in spite of good measures

In Ghana, in spite of our good roads and high ways that are well constructed, and the on going government's continued effort to modernise all roads to meet international standard, yet accidents still kill people on daily basis.

The rampant increase in accidents on our high ways, especially the Kumasi - kintempo, Accra - Kumasi and Accra - Takoradi roads is alarming and needs urgent attention to end the frequent lose of lives. A lot of people who Plies these roads as drivers and passengers have all testified. So many people have died traveling on these roads in recent times, and notable among them was the late dance hall artist, Ebony, who died traveling on the Kumasi - Accra high way.

Now the question is, what is it that always cause Accidents? Is it for the reckless driving of some of the drivers on Alcohol influence, bad tyres, over speeding or the bad state of these roads?

One would wonder why accidents on our roads just can't stop in spite of measures put in place by government to reduce, or curb it. Some concerned citizens have appealed to government to dualise the roads, as dual carriageways on the Accra - Kumasi, Accra - Takoradi, and Accra - Aflao roads could certainly reduce accidents. Frequent crack down on drivers who drinks and drive when drunk, would also help.

Vehicles and tyres worthiness should be checked, and DVLA should see to it that, only qualified and experienced drivers are granted licenses, and could make drivers undergo intensive training too.
