Former Roads and Highways Minister, Inusah Fusieni, has called for a ban on nighttime travel by commercial passenger vehicles in the wake of the tragic bus accident on the Techiman-Kintampo road that claimed over 60 lives last Friday, March 22, 2019.
Mr. Fuseini believes such a move would greatly reduce road accidents in the country.
Speaking to CitiNews the former minister insisted that there was enough proof that long distance travels in the night contributed greatly to road accidents.

“We should take a bold courageous decision to ban night travel of passenger vehicles,” the former minister argued.
He added that he did not see the reason drivers were allowed to drive in the night while they had all the sun providing light to everywhere.
“Why would we allow drivers to continue to drive in the night when they could have the benefit of the sun providing more than a thousand watts of light to see everywhere. Driving at night can subject the body of a driver to a lot of trials; exhaustion being the worst culprit,” he noted.
