Koforidua, May 11, GNA - A cross section of people in the New Juaben Municipality has expressed concern that for the past three days, police motor checks on roads had been suspended, creating a lot of road traffic nuisance.
In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Koforidua on Friday, some members of the public said the invisibility of the police on the roads was dangerous to all road users since their road checks were important to ensure that road traffic defaulters did not have their way.
The GNA had information that the Ghana Police Service had withdrawn all motor traffic officers from the roads country wide.
The motor checks are normally performed by the Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) and their duties involve checking over speeding, overloading, driver’s license and road worthy certificates as well as other issues that have impact on road users.
Most of the accident prone areas in the country are located in the Eastern Region notable areas being Nsawam, Suhum and other towns on the Bunso/Kumsai road.
