A new filling station named Gerrm Kissi Star Oil Service Centre was inaugurated at a ceremony at Samanhu near Tarkwa.

The occasion was used to present the awards of three lucky winners of star oil raffle which was drawn in February ending.

The awards included Toyota saloon car, a set of furniture and a double decker refrigerator.

Addressing the ceremony, the Tarkwa Divisional Commander of Motor Transport Traffic Union (MTTU) Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Isaac Sokpah, said about 80 per cent of accidents was caused by human error and this was a concern to the nation.

He called on Ghanaians to collectively help to stem the trend.

He said the error could be changed and appealed to private and commercial drivers to be mindful of lives entrusted in their care anytime they sat behind the wheels and drive with care.

DSP Sokpah said though accidents recorded in Tarkwa area were low, there should be no room for complacency.

He reminded passengers to play a role when travelling by reminding drivers to drive defensively, observe road signs and should not drink and drive.

Even DSP Sokpah said passengers should insist on drivers not to talk on mobile phones while driving.

He condemned the display of mobile phones as luxury though a necessity, saying drivers should even allow passengers to receive their calls while driving or stop and receive calls in order not to distract their attention.
