Police Superintendent Mrs Debora Addison-Campbell, Deputy Commander of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) of the Ghana Police Service, has said the high rate of road accidents in the country could be attributed to the non-compliance with basic driving regulations on the part of motorists.

She told the GNA in an interview in Accra at the weekend that until the drivers themselves realised that flouting traffic rules other offences was not in anyone’s interest, the problems on the roads would still persist.

Superintendent Debora Campbell said the police would form a special task force to monitor vehicles, as well as drivers on the highways to make the country accident free, but added that the responsibility of road safety ultimately rested in the hands of the drivers themselves.

She urged the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) to enact a law that would make it an offence to sell alcoholic drinks in all lorry parks.

She expressed her condolence to the families of those young students who lost their lives at Apenkwa recently and urged members of the GPRTU to exercise the great caution to avert similar occurrences in the future.

“I wish to take this opportunity to urge the social partners and other stakeholders that through their continuous collaborative efforts such unfortunate incidents on our roads would be minimised to ensure safety on our roads” she said.
