If I may not be exaggerating, about 30 road accidents have been recorded in Ghana just in the second month of a new year, 2021 and it about time our leaders take into consideration how to go by reducing the rate at which car accidents is killing innocent people.
Though COVID-19 is dangerous, cars especially those Buses and long vehicles are more dangerous as it has taken lives of innocent people more than COVOD-19.
Having said that yesterday happened to be one of the sad days in Ghana as two VIP Buses crashed and killed 16 people at the spot leaving the rest in the Buses in critical conditions.
This got the whole nation ablaze as they couldn’t think Straight on the grounds that, the said Buses have been taking lives of Ghanaians and the government of Ghana are acting blind and death ears on it.
In as much as the government is been blame over the sad incidents happening over reasons that, Ghana has poor road networks leading to the unfortunate incidents, a trending photo captures the indiscipline on our roads leading to life loss and many Ghanaians have react to it.
In the said photo, cars including three VIP Buses were seen overtaking other cars while climbing a hill which is a very dangerous thing to do on the road over reasons that, one can not tell whether a car from the other side of the road is heading towards you while you overtake a car since you can’t see cars heading from the back of the hill.
There was also a road sign indicating that, overtaking on that part of the read is not allowed but our drivers act blind on them an still overtake and end up in a gory accidents which will eventually take lives of innocent people.
Take a look at the said photo below
