Genyingi Kwaku Philip – Winneba. C/R
Resident’s of Gomoah Asebu calls on government and Ghana highways and all agencies of concerns to help the community with road signs and speed ramps.
They noted that, the speed at which drivers accelerate on the highway is very bad and due to the lackadaisical attitude of some drivers, it becomes very difficult for pedestrians to use the highway.
They stress that, the usage of the highway from winneba junction to Agona Swedru have become hazardous in the locality, which they can not afford losing future leaders every year on the highway.
Again, they express that, since that is the only highway which is used in running the day to day activities by both taxi and trotro drivers among others.
They appeal that drivers and car owners should under go proper education on the highway regulations as well as embark on bodyworks on their cars before using the road.
They emphasize that a community can only contribute to development when there is peace and security but when people in the vicinity are being knocked down by cars, it halts down development in the society and the nation as a whole.
They are therefore appealing to all stakeholders, Ghana highways authority and agencies of concern to come to their aid, in resolving such a challenge.
Some drivers admitted that in most cases they were in haste to reach out passengers in order to make their daily sales and to care for their families.
They added that most accidents were caused by pedestrians because they do not study the road before crossing and in some cases they were under the influence of alcohol and drugs as drivers but have pledge to be of good behavior when using the road.
Some government officials of good standing admitted the fact and have promise to champion such cause by following the proper channel in getting their concerns address without hesitation.
They officials pledge.
