An interesting footage has popped up on social media showing a trotro driver at Takoradi using a kitchen stool as his seat instead of the normal car seat.
In the video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Facebook handle of Graphic Online, the back of the car was also uncovered, exposing the inside video of the vehicle.
Although it appeared as though the trotro was in the process of undergoing some repair works, the driver seemed highly vulnerable in that condition of the car.
A careful look at the movement of the car showed that any little impact could badly hurt the driver as there was no support like a seat belt to restrain him.
Furthermore, any object could come flying in from the back of the car which was left open to the wind and this could also wreak havoc on the driver or any other passenger.
It is unclear why the road regulatory agencies have not clamped down on such activities that could easily lead to loss of lives and properties.
Meanwhile, another heartwrenching video showing loosely-hanging rocks packed in a truck that was on transit on a principal street in Accra surfaced on social media.
In the footage that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official YouTube handle of SV TV Africa, the recorder expressed great concerns regarding the observation.
The look in the video appeared that with the little impact on the car such as that given by a speed ramp, the block could easily topple over onto any bystander of a nearby vehicle.
