All commercial vehicles to have speed limiters to help prevent road accidents

The National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) as part of new moves to help prevent road accidents is to ensure that all commercial vehicles are fitted with speed limiters.

According to the NRSC, it intends to lead a conversation on the implementation of the Regulation on Speed limiters, which requires that all commercial vehicles must be fitted with speed limiters to help manage speeds as a major contributory factor to road traffic crashes.

At a press briefing in Accra on Sunday, the NRSC said it was also working to get to the stage where it may be able to sanction public transport service providers for lapses in their operational standards which is a culture that underline the safety of the airline industry.

  1. This entity is useless. How about private drivers? The road problems in Ghana stem from indiscipline on the part of drivers, the roads/streets, and MTU of the police. Most drivers need proper driving training or schooling.

    I drive on some Ghanaian roads and just wonder the type of engineers or people who supervised the work. Road construction in these present times, taking into consideration our lateritic soils, should be better engineered and be made to last for years before maintenance. Scarce resources are used to work on same roads every 2-5 years.

    The police should be doing their jobs and giving out ‘tickets’ for drivers who cause traffic infractions like speeding, overloading, etc. They should remember that when they allow a bad driver off the hook by collecting bribes, when an accident happens with loss of lives, those unfortunate people’s blood will be on their hands.
