A directive, banning the use of tricycles, commonly known as aboboyaa on highways and the motor way was issued by the Greater Accra Regional minister.
This was necessary after motorists complained about the nuisance these aboboyaa were on our roads, and even sometimes being the cause of accidents on the road. The ban also forms part of the "Let's Make Accra Work" agenda, which mainly informed the decision to ban them from using highways and motorways, although the ban on highways it yet to take effect.
In days after the directive came into force, some tricycle (aboboyaa) riders are still recalcitrant and refuse to obey the directive, but unfortunately for some of them, they found themselves on the wrong side of the law, as they have been arrested by the police in a swoop on the motorway.
Despite the fact that these riders were fully loaded with "borla" (refuse) it didn't stop the police team from arresting and towing both their aboboyaa and the refuse they carried away to the station.
If they ever thought of using the loaded carrier as an excuse to use the motorway, then, they though wrongly.
Currently, their vehicle tricycles have been impounded while they are being required to produce documents on the aboboyaa, and possibly arraigned before court for any breach of laws.
