In the early hours of the day and during the rush hours on the University of Cape Coast, the busiest point is the Science traffic station, which connects both lectures and students to their various points.

During this period, just like any other cross junction, traffic could just impede the movement of motorists who probably have somewhere urgent to be.

It is interesting to know that, there is no such thing as traffic on the UCC campus due to the presence of Tetteh Richard Sackey, a security man who is stationed at this point.
