Transport expert reveals accident would still go up until right strategies are adopted

The vice president of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport, Dr Godfred Akyea-Darkwah, says he sees no end in sight to road accidents in the country.

He said if past and present governments do not commit to implementing to the letter the 2018 Legislative Instrument, the country would continue to mourn deaths on its roads.

Speaking on Midday Live on TV3 on Monday, March 25, 2019, Dr Akyea-Darkwah noted that there were three fundamental causes of road accidents: roads, vehicles and human errors.

“It is going up and it will still go up unless the right strategies are adopted,” he said.

He urged government to invest in the education and sensitisation of drivers in order to reduce road carnage.

“But if we talk about attitude and behavior and for that matter attributing it to the human behavior, the [tool] that can address the ill attitudes and bad behavior is through qualitative, pragmatic and progressive education and training,” he noted.
