    Road carnage: Minority charges NSRC, MTTD to clamp down offenders

    The Minority in Parliament has charged the National Road Safety Commission (NSRC) and the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service to crack the whip on persons whose actions contribute to the carnage on the road.

    The Minority’s call comes on the back of the tragic killing of some nine persons, two of which were students of the University of Education-Winneba, in an accident that occurred at Asuboi on the Accra-Kumasi highway.

    the fatal accident also left some other passengers on board the vehicle seriously injured and are currently receiving treatment.

    “While we condole with the families of the deceased students, the University community, and with all those who have lost their loved ones in this very crash, I take this opportunity to further charge the relevant stakeholders, most especially the National Road Safety Commission (NSRC) and the Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service to take further steps to clamp down on such individuals whose actions continue to threaten lives on our roads. ,

    “Sadly, so, the statistics on road carnage on our roads this weekend alone is horrendous and adds up to the already alarming cases of death on the road; most of which could be attributed to recklessness, indiscipline, and human error on the part of drivers and motorists,” Ranking Member on Parliament’s Education Committee, Peter Nortsu-Kotoe stated.

    According to him, the heartbreaking and unfortunate incident has robbed the nation again of young lives that would have been very significant to the nation’s development.

    “We cannot continue to blame the devil for these unacceptable happenings,” he concluded.
