In the course of a special exercise conducted by the police in relation with Citi media group dubbed “War Against Indiscipline” the police said 40 drivers were rounded up.He burden of road crashes in Ghana require a conscientious and multi-sectorial approach to reduce its occurrence and impact, while policies need strengthening and enforcing at all levels.

The impact of RTAs may be mitigated by efficient emergency systems as well as policies which support care of victims. However, at the primary level, implementation of traffic rules and reg-lations is key, as discussions on road and vehicle safety are broadened. Road safety should be of concern to all stakeholders, as both motorists and pedestrians are at risk of the hazards of road crashes.

The drivers are reported to have engaged in dangerous driving, driving on the shoulders of the roads and verges, abuse of sirens and beacon lights, among others.

The 40 drivers are being processed for courts in Tema and Ashaiman while the impounded vehicles are currently at the Tema Community 25 Police Station.

According to the police the exercise is meant to deter drivers whose activities contribute to congestions on major roads in Accra and Tema Metropolis.
