Police in Ghana’s Ashanti region is set to roll out a special operation aimed at tackling breaches of road traffic regulations in the region.
Dubbed, “Operation Produce Your Drivers’ Licence”, the exercise has been scheduled on Monday, February 3, 2020, the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the police said in a statement.
“Every driver of any type of vehicle is advised to carry his/her driver’s licence while driving on the road,” the statement admonished.
The police said the move is aimed at ensuring a “vigorous enforcement” of Regulation 47 of the Road Traffic Regulation, warning drivers that the failure to produce their licences “will lead to the arrest of defaulting drivers and possible prosecution.”
Fatalities on the Ghana’s roads have come to the fore of public discourse again following the death of 34 persons in an accident that happened at 12:15 am Tuesday, on the Cape Coast-Takoradi Highway.
