The Director In Charge of Education, Research and Training at Motor Traffic and Transport Division (MTTU) of the Ghana Police Service, DSP Alexander Obeng has attributed the single road network in the country as a major cause of road crashes on our highways.
DSP Obeng said research has proven that most of the heartbreaking accidents occurs on the Trans-West Africa International roads (ie: the roads that connect the country to the neighboring countries) example is the Elubo –Yamoransa -Aflao highway, Kwame Nkrumah Circle – Nkawkaw road, Kumasi – Tamale highway.)
Speaking in an interview on Nkwa 88.1 FM, DSP Obeng disclosed that a similar accident occurred in 2010 where 65 people lost their lives.
The incident occurred at Kadia between Tamale and Bolga, another 16 people lost their lives at Kintampo in 2016 and 2019, 18 people also lost their lives at Bupala.
DSP Obeng said, all this highways are single roads, so a little mistake from a driver and or any mechanical faults can cause an accident.
He pleaded with his fellow police personnel on the highways to act professionally by not accepting bribes from defaulting drivers.
