The Member of Parliament for Daffiama/Bussie/Issa, Dr Sebastian Sandaare has advised motorists to be careful on the road during the festive season.

According to the MP, this will reduce the many road accidents that happen during the festivities.

In an interview with EXPRESSNEWSGHANA, Dr Sandaare entreated drivers to observe road signs and respect other users of the road.

He charged motorists plying highways, especially the Accra-Kumasi, Kumasi to Wa, Kintampo –Bolgatanga and Accra –Cape Coast, to desist from acts that will result in the loss of lives on the country’s roads

The lawmaker also urged pedestrians to be extra vigilant.

“I advise motorists to be cautious when they are on the way. They should drive cautiously by observing all road signs and give due consideration to other motorists, especially pedestrians and other vulnerable groups of road users.”

“Pedestrians should also be careful anytime they want to cross the road”, he cautioned.

The MP further urged drivers to avoid drinking and driving to avert accidents along the road as Ghanaians travels around the country to enjoy with family and friends.

In Ghana, it is not uncommon to experience a rise in road crashes during festive occasions.

Regulators such as the Ghana Highway Authority (GHA), the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) continue with their road safety enforcement campaigns before, during and after the festivities.

The exercise is usually to help reduce road crashes during the celebrations.

Regions across the country record high road crashes during the first and last quarter of the year, hence the appropriate authorities are bent on bringing the crashes down by the years.

Drivers are also warned against ignoring police flags and instructions, with travellers urged to report undisciplined drivers to the police.

Passengers also have a key role to play in ensuring that those driving them are in good condition at all times.
