With election campaigns mounting towards the tail end of the December polls, several road crashes involving party supporters and candidate has been recorded in parts of the country.

Following the rise in cases of road fatalities involving party supporters, the National Road Safety Authority has admonished all persons to abide by the laid down safety codes to prevent any further deaths and causalities.

Speaking in an interview on UniversNews, the Director of Planning and Programs for the Road Safety Authority, David Osafo Adonteng, has entreated all political parties to complement efforts by the Authority by ensuring that their supporters obey all road safety protocols.

“It is very critical at this time for political parties to buy into the concept of the road safety codes. They have signed for it to serve as a guide for them for they are travelling to their rallies, their campaigns, this guide is something to guide them, how they go, when they go and when they get to their destination, what they should do; it is my expectation that they will all abide by the content of the code,” Mr Adonteng said.
