Residents of Akatsi Tatorme and surrounding communities in the Akatsi South Municipality of the Volta region have asked the authorities to deal with the perennial knockdown of pedestrians along the Akatsi Tatorme-District Assembly road.

They threatened to block the main Accra-Akatsi to Dzodze highway if no action is taken. They said portions of the road have recorded several accidents and killed many road users and pedestrians because of the inaction of the authorities and opinion leaders.

The current threat followed the death of Daniel Adzalo, a 56-year-old fisherman, who was crushed to death by a car yesterday morning. An aggrieved resident, Sitsofe Vuvor, said they will embark on demonstration if immediate steps are not taken to curb the dangerous trend.

He said several appeals by members of the community have proved futile hence the need to express their displeasure with a street action.

Mr. Vuvor disclosed that the accident occurred at about 6 am on the GN Bank- Tatorme stretch of the Akatsi District Assembly road. He said the deceased left home that morning for fishing at Akatsi- ‘Katapilarga’ when the unfortunate incident happened.

He was walking on the shoulder of the road with his bicycle when the oncoming vehicle, knocked him down resulting in his death. The Assembly Member for the area, Edward Doe Adade, complained about rampant road accidents on that stretch.
