The head of communication of Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) Mr Abass Imoro has stated that most accidents are caused by reckless human error.
He said the high rate of road accidents could be attributed to non-compliance with simple basic road regulations.
“Most accidents are caused by reckless human behavior. We need to obey road safety regulations to reduce accidents in the country.”
“In countries where accidents have been reduced, the laws are respected; when people flout them they are punished,” he stated.
According to Mr Abass Imoro statistics had shown that 80 per cent of road accidents were due to human error.
Speaking in an interview with OTEC FM morning show, dubbed ‘Nyasapo’ on Monday September 12, 2022 Mr Abass Imoro said per GPRTU regulations, drivers are supposed to drive at a speed limit of 50 km/h in town but most drivers go above the limit.
He, therefore, urged drivers to be cautious on the road by avoiding excessive speeding, wrongful overtaking, drunk-driving, fatigue and regularly undertake maintenance of their vehicles.
“I was driving one time and most drivers passed by me because I was driving on the speed limit of 50km/h”, Mr. Imoro told Captain Koda, the host of the programme.
