Speed Kills Campaign: road safety Ambassador calls on all Ghanaians to join the fight

According to the World Health Organization, road crashes are a leading cause of death and injury in Ghana.

The causes of road crashes in Ghana are varied, but they often include speeding, drunk driving, poor road conditions, and lack of adherence to traffic laws. In addition, many vehicles on Ghana’s roads are old and poorly maintained, which can contribute to accidents.

Given the high number of road crashes in Ghana, there is a need for a campaign to raise awareness about road safety. Such a campaign could include public education and awareness campaigns, stricter enforcement of traffic laws, and efforts to improve road conditions and vehicle maintenance.

The government of Ghana has already taken some steps to address road safety, including the creation of the National Road Safety Commission and the passage of a Road Traffic Act.
