THE recent lorry accident which occurred at Kintampo has brought to the fore, the recklessness and irresponsible operations of vehicles by our literate drivers on our roads which had from time immemorial brought so many families to their knees.
But the question we should be asking ourselves are what are the causes of these avoidable and unavoidable slaughtering of passengers on our road? Who are directly and indirectly responsible for these unnecessary lorry accidents?
Day in and day out as we drive along on our roads, we see ramshackle and rickety vehicles that also compete with us; some overspeeding, others doing dangerous driving and overtaking, some insulting especially the ‘tro tro’ drivers. Who is to be blamed for all these mess? Officials of the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority (D.V.L.A) as well as officers of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (M.T.T.U) cannot escape blame for all these things.
