Government says it is taking steps to implement a road regulation which will require all commercial vehicles operating in the country have speed limiters fitted on them as part of measures being taken to stem the spate of road accidents. At least 60 persons were crashed dead last Friday and several others injured in separate road accidents in the Central and Bono East regions involving high occupancy vehicles.National Road Safety Commission (NRSC), May Obiri-Yeboah said her outfit intends to lead a conversation on the regulation on speed limiters. The speed limiter, she said, will “help manage speeds as a major contributory factor to road traffic crashes”.

These equipment, she said will be handed over to the Police MTTD before the end of March. Meanwhile she said the NRSC is working towards becoming an Authority to be able to “sanction transport service providers for lapses” in their operational standards just like the airline industry have. She said Cabinet has granted approval of the Memorandum to transform the National Road Safety Commission to National Road Safety Authority. “The Attorney General has completed the draft Bill and the Ministry of Transport is preparing to engage the relevant Parliamentary-Select Committees. The NRSC becoming Authority, she explained, will mandate it to enforce standards on road safety as regards the design, construction and use of the road and vehicle and be responsible for the regulation of commercial transport operations and services.
