 Dear Editor,

I want to bring to the notice of the appropriate authorities concerned about an action by some drivers which has become an issue and needs to be addressed before it be­comes too late.

The parking of faulty cars at roadsides by some drivers especially from Pig Farm area to Circle in Accra poses danger not to drivers alone but to pedes­trians and passengers.

It also causes unneces­sary traffic on that stretch of the road and waste passengers time.

The road is a single lane yet drivers go ahead to park their cars at the sides, leaving very nar­row spaces for drivers to navigate against oncoming vehicles.

This has on many occa­sions created rift between drivers as they struggle to meander their way through the narrow space left.

On my way to work last Monday, I witnessed two drivers who almost crashed due to this same issue. Likewise, there have been several accidents recorded over the years as a result of the menace on that stretch of road.

I want to urge appropri­ate authorities responsible for such vehicles to act as soon as possible to find a way to address it before it results in further damages.

Also, the government and other road safety au­thorities must endeavour to remove faulty vehicles from the roads for smooth driving and also prevent accidents from occurring.
