The Committed Drivers Association of Ghana has disclosed on Rainbow Radio 87.5fm that it is currently establishing a training academy to train their members.
President of the Association, Charles Danso, told sit-in- host of Frontline Nana Adjoa Owusu that the training academy is currently under construction and 70 per cent complete.
He was responding to a question on what the Committed Drivers will do or propose to help address the rate of accidents on our roads.
He said the training academy would help in training members of the association and imbibe in them the need to be disciplined on our roads to help reduce accidents.
He slammed the National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) for failing on their job to create awareness and educate drivers.
‘’We have to review and evaluate the performance of NRSC. We have to find out whether thy have done what they are expected to do. Government always allocates to the NRSC money for their campaign and work but have we heard of any report from them on the impact of their training of drivers and campaigns?
He told the host the NRSC has not lived up to its duties hence their call for an authority is needless.
He also advocated for dual carriage roads and has appealed to government to find the money for such projects.
Charles Danso agreed with suggestions for rest stop points to allow drivers rest especially those on long journeys.
He described the recent Kintampo deadly road accident, which claimed over 55 passengers as painful and preventable.
