In light of the many recorded cases of road accidents, the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei-Owusu has lauded intercity STC for their low involvement in accidents across the country.
According to him, the intercity STC vehicles have rarely recorded any accident cases since they started operating.
The MP for Bekwai who doubles as the CEO of the Drivers and Vehicle Licencing Authority (DVLA), said this occurrence can be attributed to their adherence to traffic rules.
According to him, the vehicles are safe to use and the drivers are always two on board when it is a very long journey.
“…they are trusted for being safe, to deliver you to your destination. Of all the reports of accidents that we have heard recently, there is none involving STC buses because, in many instances, they obey the rules.
"For example, the rule is that no driver should drive continuously for more than 4 hours and so on their high/long journeys, they have two drivers," he said.
He was speaking on the floor of parliament while making a case for the approval of a tax waiver for the procurement of vehicles for Intercity STC Company Limited.
This is coming in the wake of the fact that in less than 3 months into 2020, there have been ghastly accidents that have broken the hearts of many Ghanaians.
All these accidents have one thing in common - they leave a bad taste in the mouth of families of the accident victims.
YEN.com.gh has compiled a list of major accidents that left Ghanaians sad.
