The carnage on Ghana’s roads - Time for common-sense solutions
This article shares my ideas and experiences as a US based Ghanaian who has made several trips to Ghana in the last few years, and have spent several hundred hours driving on Ghana’s major roads. The idea is to compare our broken system with one that works, in order to provide some simple but useful ideas for consideration by government and policy makers. This is in no way an attempt to disparage the country, or to suggest that the US system is perfect.
The enormous waste of valuable lives and property on our highways should be of grave concern to government and citizens alike. The National Road Safety Commission recorded 222 fatalities and 1,396 injuries in January 2020 alone. This translates to about 2,500 deaths a year. As a Ghanaian, I am horrified at this and the seemingly little or no action by the authorities to stem the situation. We see the scenario being played out over and over again – a major “accident” with a lot of casualty occurs on Accra-Kumasi road and is reported all over the news; then all the key national players come in to express their views and advice to drivers; victims and families share their stories and grief; and so on. Then within a few days, the cycle repeats on another highway, like the Accra-Takoradi road. Let us take a look at some of the underlying issues:
