Mrs Mary Obiri-Yeboah, the Director-General of the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA), has called on Transport Unions and stakeholders to support interventions being implemented to reduce road fatalities.
She said the commercial transport sector needed to be regulated to ensure smooth operations and expressed the hope that the amendment of the regulations governing the industry would bring sanity to the sector and reduce the carnage on the roads.
Mrs Obiri-Yeboah said these during a working visit to the Krachi East Municipality of the Oti Region to build support for the authority's new regulatory mandate.
She observed that the new region have fewer vehicles compared to tricycles and motorbikes crossing each other's pathway on daily basis.
She said information from the Ghana Police Service indicated that every week two or more people died in motor crashes in the region, a situation that must be addressed.
Mrs Obiri-Yeboah is expected to interact with both Municipal and Regional Police Commands in the region, Transport Union operators, Okada riders and other private transport unions on safety measures on the roads.
