Drive with caution – NRSC warns
The Ghana Meteorological Agency has predicted more rains and floods in the coming weeks. We wish to advise road users especially motorists to exercise alertness as they drive on all roads with the onset of the rains.
The rainy season is often characterized by hazy weather conditions affecting visibility, bad road networks and overflowing gutters and drainages which render some roads unmotorable due to debris and flooding.
This situation affects driving and may increase the risk for road traffic crashes.
We wish to caution all drivers, vehicle owners, transport operators and managers to ensure that their vehicles are in good working condition.
Your vehicles must have good headlights, reflectors, tyres and wipers. Drivers on the other hand must exercise a lot of care and proper judgment. Drivers should avoid flooded roads where possible or adapt driving to below posted speed limits in order to minimize the risk associated with driving in this condition.
We expect Passengers to assume frontline road safety roles by speaking up against any form of driver recklessness that can endanger their lives. We trust that we will all observe this caution so that we can all arrive at our destinations alive.
In case of any emergency, Please call toll free 191(All Networks) 18555
