The police are getting tough with people, driving powerful Toyota Landcruiser ‘V8’ and Sport Utility Vehicles (SUVs), who have been breaking road traffic regulations with impunity.
Seven of such offending drivers including the Member of Parliament (MP) for Nhyiaeso, have been arrested in a special police operation and they are being processed for court.
It said in all, seven drivers were arrested for not complying with the road traffic regulations.
The vehicles impounded included five Toyota Landcruiser V8s, one Toyota 4 Runner, and one Toyota Highlander 4X4 SUV.
According to the police statement the offending drivers would be put before the court today, Wednesday, December 8, 2021.
Many people driving luxury automobiles with powerful engines have been paying little or no regard to the road traffic laws.
They are often seen after tailgating vehicles ahead of them in a heavy traffic, jump to the opposite lane amid blowing of their siren and off they are gone.
The names of the arrested drivers have been given as Dr. Stephen Amoah, Joseph Brown (Toyota Landcruiser V8 with registration number GT 7059 – 20), Samuel A Anim (Toyota 4 Runner with GE 303 – 2O), Emmanuel Kofi Ofori (Toyota Landcruiser with registration number GE 1611 – 17), Dimini Atuahene (Toyota Highlander 4×4 SUV with registration number GE 14 – 21), Daniel Boateng (Toyota Landcruiser with registration number GN 3516 – 18) and Thomas Atinga (Toyota Landcruiser with registration number GT 856 – 20).
It may be recalled that the Inspector General of Police (IGP) George Akuffo Dampare on Sunday, November 28, arrested a Toyota Landcruiser V8 driver, found driving recklessly on the Accra-Kumai highway.
There was a traffic jam, but Gilbert Danso Tweneboa, had no patience to wait, moved his powerful vehicle into high gear, and drove on the opposite lane.
The IGP was using the same road corridor at the time, he was chased until the IGP, who was traveling in a service vehicle, GP1, caught up with him, arrested and handed him over to the Kyebi District Police Commander, who subsequently gave him to the Divisional Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) at Kyebi to take the necessary action against him.
