VIP Jeoun Transport Limited has stated that it will introduce new measures to enhance the safety of passengers on its buses. It said although the company already had some safety measures in place, it would adopt new ones to improve its operations. 19 persons died on the spot in the early hours of last Friday when two buses traveling in opposite directions on the Accra-Kumasi Highway collided head-on. The accident involved two Kia Grandbird buses with registration numbers GT 5629-19 and GE 5510-15, one of which was a VIP bus.
In the next six months, VIP will be able to have the safety of its passengers upgraded to 100 percent with highly experienced drivers. VIP was also looking at deploying more inspectors on the roads to monitor its operations. “VIP is a law-abiding company, and we travel to 46 destinations,” he said.
