To him, the road authorities are not the only ones to blame but also the entire populace.
''As we caution drivers and government, we should equally caution ourselves who also ply the roads," Charles Owusu said on Peace FM's ''Kokrokoo''.
He advised drivers and motor riders to value their lives as well as the life of other people by ensuring they drive and ride safely.
He urged the drivers and riders to respect the traffic regulations stressing ''we must protect our life''.
