The National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) has pleaded with motorists to be very cautious during the three-day funeral ceremony of the late President John Mills.
The Commission also cautioned motorists to be mindful of their alcohol intake particularly on Friday which will be the day for the final funeral rites and burial of President Mills.
Some persons were reportedly injured in a motor accident during the one week celebration of the late President last week.
Speaking to Citi News,
the Head of Communication at the National Road Safety Commission, Kwame Kodua Atuahene stated that “while President Mills lived, he was an advocate for safety, he was so concerned about the safety of people and it will be sad and ironic that as we take steps to mourn his death, people will exhibit acts and conducts that will lead to loss of lives.”
He thus called on all travelers and motorists to plan their trips and take a mandatory rest when necessary “and those who want to take in some alcohol should be mindful that these are factors that impair our concentration levels so the celebrations should be done with a certain amount of caution.”
