Incidence of road accident is on an increase in Ghana. Several lives and properties have been lost through road accident.
The government of Ghana has lost much funds accruing to problems of road accidents. It is now no news in Ghana to hear that individuals have lost their lives in a road accident.
Over speeding, overtaking, reckless driving, ignorance on the part of some drivers in obeying road signs all account to the increased cases of road accident in Ghana.
Road accidents cannot be talked of in Ghana without mentioning bad roads as been a principal cause. There are lots of port holes on majority of our roads. Road Constructors fail to use authentic material in constructing a long lasting road. All these contribute to the increased rate of road accidents in the country.
