Drivers Urged To Obey Traffic Rules

By Times Reporter -

Drivers and motor riders have been advised to obey road traffic instructions in order to safeguard life and property.

Mr Imad Ghorayed, General Manager of Japan Motors Trading Company, made the call at the launch of four-wheel all-terrain vehicles by Yamaha Motors Limited in Accra on Monday.

He noted that drivers disregard for traffic regulations contributed to most of the accidents on the country's roads.

Mr Ghorayed, commended Yamaha for introducing the All-Terrain Vehicles, saying they were ideal for farming, work-field and rural environments.

The vehicles, he said, were safe, comfortable and easy-to-handle on low-grade roads in the rural areas and some urban areas.

The vehicles were outdoored at the Yamaha Riding Academy organised by Japan Motors Trading Company, main franchise distributors for Yamaha Motors in Ghana and was facilitated by a five-man team from Yamaha Motors, Japan, and Yamaha Motors' Liaison Office for West and Central Africa based in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire.

The training offered companies, organisations and individuals an opportunity to acquire practical and technical knowledge about the vehicles and how to handle them.

Those who received training in the handling of the vehicles were two riders each from the Volta River Authority, Ghana Health Service, Coca Cola Bottling Company Limited, the Community Water and Sanitation Agency and Home Finance Bank.

Mr Hidenobu Toh, chief instructor, took the participants through training processes aimed at making them more professional in their riding.

Mr Fimihiko Muraki, leader of the Yamaha Motors of Japan delegation, said Yamaha products had built-in efficiency, strength and values which users needed to complement by using the motorcycles and vehicles in the correct way.
