Our superstition has long run into abject insouciance, paralyzing us from technically analyzing situations and taking informed corrective measures. The simple truth is that three young people, including the rising star Ebony, died because a road contractor, in an act of gross negligence left a heap of sand on the road, blocking traffic, leading to the fatal accident. In August 2016, I went with my wife and children to Ghana on a visit for the summer. This simple exercise, if carried out effectively should clear the roads and drastically reduce road accidents in Ghana. The death of Ebony at such a young age, added to all the hundreds of deaths on our roads should wake us up to action.
