NRSC Entreat Passengers to Sue Careless Transport Unions


The Eastern Regional Director of the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC), Kwasi Yirenkyi, has urged passengers to consider legal actions against transport unions who fail to transport them safely to their destinations.

Mr. Yirenkyi said the time has come for passengers or their relatives to test the law in that regard since everything seems to suggest that transport unions do not care about passengers’ safety but are rather interested in making money from them.

“You can’t be combining human beings and goods, if you want to operate a goods transport, operate a goods transport and if you want to operate a passenger transport, operate a passenger transport but in a situation where you lump passengers and goods together; it’s not right.

“You pay for a transport service to be transported and arrive at your destination alive and not as a dead person,”. He lamented.

Referencing the accident at Nkawkaw-Abepotia on June 4, which claimed five lives and injured over 50 persons, Kwasi Yirenkyi told the media that transport operators receive passengers as living human beings and not as luggage or dead persons before the start of a journey and therefore must make it a priority to take passengers to their destination safely.

Yirenkyi stressed that until a legal action is tested, transport operators will continue to take human lives for granted on the roads.
