The Daily Graphic is concerned with the increasing spate of road accidents on our roads. It recalls last Monday’s accident at Kintampo in the Bono East Region which claimed more than 30 lives. According to the paper, most of the crashes are as a result of human errors which include speeding, wrongful overtaking, drink-driving among others. The Graphic advises that the root causes of the menace should be tackled head-on. It calls for a multi-stakeholder approach to be adopted. It urges the National Road Safety Authority to speed up policies being developed to address the situation. The paper also entreats the Police MTTD to enforce road traffic regulations and urges all Ghanaians to join in the campaign to restore sanity on the roads.

The Ghanaian Times is also worried about the periodic road carnage on our roads especially the Kintampo- Tamale highway. It said that stretch of the highway is one of the best in the country yet consistently records most of the horrendous accidents with high fatality. Sadly, there seems to be little or no effort to address the problem. It calls for drastic measures to end the fatality on that road. The Times, therefore, urges the Ghana Highway Authority to conduct an audit on the road and provide some guidelines to prevent further crashes.
