oa Institute of African Studies Research Review - Driver behaviour and city traffic: empirical observations from Accra, Ghana

Volume 15, Issue 1-2
  • ISSN : 0855-4412



Deviant driving behaviour and the effect on traffic in Accra is examined. The evidence is inconclusive but seems to suggest that the person behind the wheel is responsible for a substantial number of the traffic problems reported on roads in the city. tHere is also reason to believe that traffic management and control in the city needs to be stepped up and that this should be approached from the perspective of the road user. However, all these have to be preceded by the collection of data on driver behaviour covering both the individual and a broad spectrum of the wider environment so that the extent of the problem of deviant driving behaviour in the city can be put into proper perspective.
