On December 14, a Toyota vehicle veered off the road and landed into a ditch. An account from a victim dismissed claims of over speeding.

“The steer of the vehicle got stuck. We were not over speeding. Hopefully, we sustained minor injuries,” he said.

In response to the matter, a representative of the Ghana Highway Authority said: “the accidents are behavioural. The drivers don’t obey the rules of the road.”

According to him, drivers over speed because of the notion on a newly constructed road.

He said for construction zones, the speed limit is 30-50MPH, hence urged drivers to avoid unnecessary overtaking and over speeding.
