This concerning figure underscores the urgent need for improved road safety measures, as it has led to the terrible deaths of 369 people, 2,552 injuries, and 381 pedestrian knockdowns involving 3,910 vehicles.

The National Road Safety Authority (NRSA) produced the data, which highlights Ghana’s ongoing struggles to reduce the plague of traffic accidents. There is still reason for concern given the high number of crashes and fatalities, even with continuous attempts to enforce traffic regulations and enhance road infrastructure.

The bulk of traffic accidents, according to the NRSA, were caused by careless driving, speeding, and mechanical issues with cars. These elements have led to an increase in accidents and the ensuing death toll, which has been exacerbated by bad road conditions and insufficient safety precautions.
