The Police Motor Traffic and Transport Department(MTTD), led by the Director-General, DCOP/Mr. Nyarko Aboagye has impounded 22 vehicles for violating various road traffic regulations along the Weija-Kasoa stretch of the N1 highway. The incident happened during a special exercise code-named “war” Against Road Traffic Indiscipline. It took effect on Friday, 3rd August 2021, between the hours of 3 pm and 6:30 pm.
During the exercise, they arrested 22 drivers for flouting several road traffic regulations. These drivers are currently undergoing procedures to appear in court in the Greater Accra Region. Meanwhile, the Weija Divisional MTTD have impounded their vehicles.
Some of the offences the arrested motorists committed in this special exercise include dangerous driving, driving on the shoulders and verges, driving in the opposite direction and facing oncoming vehicles among others.
The aim of The War Against Indiscipline is to deter motorists who flout road traffic laws. The flouting of road traffic laws has contributed to preventable road crashes and needless loss of lives and damage to properties. Moreover, it has also been the cause for rush-hour congestions on major roads within Accra, Kasoa and adjoining communities.
The motoring public is advised to abide by road traffic regulations at all times to enhance road safety and prevent accidents that sometimes lead to the loss of lives and properties.
As a matter of fact, most of the time, it’s even the passengers that encourage the drivers to forgo road traffic laws. While they are behind time to catch up with important deadlines, they murmur to the driver for being too womanly.
And sometimes, they ridicule that he neither knows the road nor has experience in driving to manoeuvre and beat traffic.
