Most accidents are caused by reckless human behavior – GPRTU



The head of communication of Ghana Private Roads Transport Union (GPRTU) Mr Abass Imoro has stated that most accidents are caused by reckless human behaviour.

He said the high rate of road accidents could be attributed to non- compliance to simple basic driving regulations and advised drivers to be cautious, especially during the rainy season.

“Most accidents are caused by reckless human behavior.  We need to obey road safety regulations to reduce accidents in the country.” “In countries where accidents have been reduced, the laws are respected; when people flout them they are punished.

According to Mr Abass Imoro statistics had shown that 80 per cent of road accidents were due to human error.

His comments follow the recent gory accidents that have occurred in various parts of the country.

Speaking in an interview with OTEC FM  morning show, dubbed  ‘Nyasapo’ on Monday September 12, 2022  Mr Abass Imoro said that per GPRTU regulations,  drivers are supposed to drive at a speed limit of 50 km/h but most drivers go above the limit.

He, therefore, urged drivers to be cautious on the road by avoiding excessive speeding, wrongful overtaking, drunk-driving, fatigue and regularly undertake maintenance of their vehicles.

The rise in deaths of roads accidents is due to the fact that most drivers refuse to abide by road signs and driving regulations.

“I was driving one time and most drivers passed by me because I was driving on the speed limit of 50km/h”, Mr. Imoro told Captain Koda, the host of the programme.


He urges drivers to abide solely drivers to abide by roads sign and driving regulations.
