According to the Police Chief, while some of the accidents on our roads are preventable, others are not, due to the deteriorating nature of the roads and that has contributed to many of the carnage to a point that lives are lost eventually.
“When the roads are bad, it is a problem. On the other hand, the drivers will drive carelessly because the road is good” Supt. Emmanuel Adu Boahen pointed out to host, George Opoku Mensah Agudey during a face-to-face interview on “Nkwantananso” show.
The Ashanti Regional MTTD Commander also revealed that reported cases of road carnage in the region has reduced comparatively to records of previous years.
