NRSC urges soccer fans to be moderate in their celebrations Accra , Jan 25, GNA -The National Road Safety Commission (NRSC) has urged soccer fans throughout the country to be moderate in their support and celebrations for the Black Stars during the ongoing football tournament in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.

It said supporters should shy away from acts, such as drink driving, speeding and spontaneous jubilation of goals, especially on busy roads, which would endanger their lives and that of other road users.

Mr Noble John Appiah, Executive Director of the NRSC in a press statement issued in Accra on Wednesday stated that excessive speed had been the cause of sixty percent of all road crashes in the country.

 “Alcohol slows down your reaction time, increases risk and gives a false sense of confidence” he added.

He expressed the commission’s best wishes to the Stars in the ongoing tournament and hoped they win the trophy for the nation this year.

“It takes dedication and team work to deliver trophies and safer roads. These virtues, known to the Black Stars, who have since 2011 become a global and national ambassadors for road safety will be worthy a motivation to deliver to our expectation of a trophy this year. I wish them a good run matches” he said.
