The Motor Traffic and Transport Department(MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service has blamed the increase in accidents and deaths in 2019 to indiscipline on the roads.
According to the MTTD, a total of 2,803 fatalities from over 12,000 crashes from January to November 2019 alone.
This figure exceeds the previous figures.
The Director of Operations and Programmes at the MTTD Supt. Dr Sasu-Mensah says high levels of indiscipline on the roads have resulted in a high number of recorded deaths this year.
“During the celebration of Christmas festivities, we always realize that accidents are on the upsurge and this attributable to a whole lot of factors. It is an interface between the one who is using the vehicle, the vehicle and the environment. There are so many causal factors."
"But from January to November 2019, we have recorded about 12,502 cases of road traffic accident throughout the country,” Supt. Dr Sasu-Mensah told Joy News.
