Research conducted by RSTC identified the driver as the major source of road crashes in Ghana. The main causative factors include: lack of proper education and training, improper attitudes and behaviour, inexperience and lack of right driving skills, alcoholism, sleeplessness and fatigue leading to lack of concentration, over speeding, improper overtaking, and many others.
Further research has revealed that lack of motivation on the part of drivers, financial and family pressures, indiscipline, and lack of professional conduct; among others are major contributing factors.
RSTC has designed practical and comprehensive solutions to the problems associated with drivers dubbed DRIVING MANAGEMENT SCIENCE COURSES (DMS) (Copyrighted) and it is determined to help reduce road crashes in Ghana to the barest minimum and therefore help Ghana achieve a better crash ranking in the WHO Global Burden of Diseases record.
RSTC has been able to network with other Road Safety organizations in the world like, World Road Safety Network (WRSN), RoSPA, Road Safe, ITC, etc. RSTC is also in partnership with University of Cape Coast (UCC) in the direction of research and training drivers based on our copyrighted DMS. MOU has been signed between RSTC and UCC for drivers to pursue Driving Management Science programme up to advance level and be enrolled to read University Diploma in Transport and Road Safety management- sandwich programme under Department of Regional Geography and Transportation. This programme takes-off in May 2012. At last the opportunity has come for drivers to upgrade and add value to themselves and their chosen profession.
