The Acting Regional Head of the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC), Madam Akua Ansah Cobbinah, has called on both pedestrians and drivers to observe road traffic regulations to minimise the spate of road carnage in the region.

Over the years, the NRSC has identified drunk driving, speeding, wrongful overtaking, driving while tired as some major human errors that had increased fatal crashes on the roads.

Madam Cobbinah in a statement to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) lauded the Agency’s contribution to their work in previous years but noted that much more needed to be achieved in fighting the menace through attitudinal change and called on the GNA to continue to support them to deliver on their mandate.

She said road safety was the collective responsibility of all road users, adding that if a pillion rider for example wears his helmet it helps to reduce the rate of accidents.

She admonished road users to cross roads at zebra marked points or at signalised intersections where the pelican shows green for pedestrians.

She emphasised the need for pedestrians to use foot bridges and to be extra careful when crossing the road as well as the use of mobile phones when crossing the road.

Madam Cobbinah appealed to both drivers and pedestrians to play their respective roles to reduce road accidents as road safety is a shared responsibility.
