The national road safety commission [NRSC], in collaboration with the Motor Traffic and Transport Department [MTTD] of the Ghana Cops service has actually started monitoring and outreach workout on the Tema-Akosombo highways, both kept in mind as locations for road traffic crashes and fatalities.Officials of the NRSC and the MTTD mounted checkpoints at Sogakope, Tsopoli and Atimpoku where workers of the MTTD concentrated on examining the credibility of driving licenses, roadworthy documents, broken tyres, faulty windshields, fire extinguishers, amongst others and educated motorists on the need to ensure a mishap complimentary year.Drivers were also sensitized to the requirement to examine speed, driving under the influence and driver fatigue.Motor riders were also prompted to wear crash helmets while passengers were recommended to be vigilant and speak out on issues about roadway safety and traffic matters with the view to drastically reducing road traffic crashes.The Volta local supervisor of the Roadway Safety Commission, Mr. Kwasi Tibu Yirenkyi, with oversight responsibility of the two paths in an interview at Tsopoli, stated the reasoning behind the project was to inform drivers on the requirement to observe the rules and guidelines on the road.According to him, though there had actually been a decrease in the number of

people who passed away through road accidents on the two routes in 2018, the NRSC thought about the Tema-Aflao and Tema -Akosombo highways as the most crash-prone in the country.He said even though the NSRC and the MTTD had actually mounted about six checkpoints in between Prampram

and Aflao, in addition to mobile units which performed periodic checks, a great deal of accidents were taped on the route.He, for that reason, warned the drivers to be cautious in their work, prevent careless driving and wrongful overtaking to make sure safety on the road.Two board members of the NRSC who supervised the monitoring and outreach program, Mr. Akwasi Agyeman Opambour and Mr. George Fausta Baffoe, both stressed the requirement for an attitudinal and behavioral modification on the part of some drivers.Mr. Obambour stated the tracking and outreach exercises came in during the festive duration throughout which NRSC performed series of sensitization and awareness project towards an accident-free Christmas.He stated the

lessons and observations made would be factored into the commission’s prepare for 2019 to boost its operations and suppress the carnage on our roads.He contacted the police to step up their efforts on the roadways to

put chauffeurs in the check and additional indicated that the NRSC was dealing with other stakeholders such as the Driver, Automobile and Licensing Authority [

DVLA] to guarantee that weak cars were not released with road worthy sticker labels to ply the roads.
