The Daily Graphic is worried about the increasing carnage on the country’s roads. The paper says last year alone, more than two thousand lives were lost to road crashes. According to the Graphic, current statistics show that crashes involving commercial vehicles killed 455 and injured more than three thousand persons in just the first six months of this year which it finds disturbing. While acknowledging efforts by the police MTTD, National Road Safety Authority, and other stakeholders to stop the carnage on the roads, it believes that drivers have not done much to halt the needless deaths. The Graphic believes it is time the National Road Safety Authority and the MTTD stepped up enforcement of road traffic regulations as the country cannot continue to lose its productive population to accidents. The paper says on the spot fines, speed limits in communities, adherence to traffic lights and road signs must be enforced.

The Ghanaian Times writes on the need to  Invest in mental health. It says mental health and well-being are fundamental to the collective and individual ability as humans tend to think, interact with each other, earn a living and enjoy life. According to the paper, the promotion, protection and restoration of mental health could be regarded as a vital concern of individuals, communities and societies throughout the world. It says the current and projected burdens of mental disorders are of concern not only for public health but economic and social development as well. The paper says amidst the inadequate funding, lack of infrastructure and human resources, superstition associated with mental health is inhibiting people from accessing medical attention. The Times says, the mental bill passed in 2012 has not served its purpose of enhancing healthcare in that field.
