The Ghana Police Service will later today [Monday], September 5, 2021, arraign about 40 drivers for various road traffic offences.

The vehicles of these drivers were impounded by MTTD personnel in two separate operations on the Weija-Kasoa road and the Tema- Shai-Hills Akosombo Highway.

The operations form part of the ongoing special exercise, War Against Indiscipline in partnership with Citi TV.

Speaking to the media during one of the operations, the Director-General of the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, DCOP Aboagye Nyarko, said his outfit will sustain efforts to ensure compliance on the roads.

“We will not rest until we have rid our roads of these recalcitrant drivers.”

About War Against Indiscipline
The #WarAgainstIndiscipline – Be the change campaign is aimed at helping to avert the increasing loss of lives through road crashes.

In May 2019, the station began the campaign against all forms of indiscipline in the country.

The exercise took the nation by surprise when it partnered with the Ghana Police Service to arrest errant drivers, process them for court and have them fined.

It covered roads noted for reckless driving within and outside Accra.

These roads include Spintex, Legon by-pass, Dawhenya, Pokuase-Amasaman, Kasoa-Weija, Adenta-Dodowa among others.

The first leg of the campaign was aimed at checking indiscipline on roads.

The campaign was also targeted at putting regulatory bodies on their toes to ensure that the various road safety laws are enforced.

A second leg sought to compel drivers to stay within speed limits.
