The driver of a VIP bus with the registration number GR 9922-15 that was reportedly moving from Kumasi to Accra was captured using his mobile phone whilst driving.
The video was made public by a gentleman identified on Facebook as Jah Man who appears to have been in the bus when the disturbing action was ongoing.
In the footage, the unnamed driver is using a relatively busy road and driving with great speed, which made his decision to use his phone quite ridiculous.
See video below:
He is seen navigating different applications on his phone, including WhatsApp, after which he finally started making a phone call.
The use of phones during driving is highly prohibited no matter how much care is being taken, as one can easily get distracted by captivating messages or media files.
Also, it is estimated that the amount of time spend making sense of anything on the phone is long enough to drive into a completely unexpected situation and end up in an accident.
Just recently, a popular public transport bus that was en route to Wulensi in the Northern Region ended up nose-first in the River Oti at Dambai in the Krachi East Municipality.
The bus, with the registration number GT 5313-19, was travelling with passengers from Accra to Wulensi when the accident occurred.
A report filed by the Ghana News Agency (GNA) noted that the incident happened on Thursday morning, 10 July.
