MEC Yawa commended the Bapong Traffic Control Centre headed by PPI Madiba for stopping over 2666 vehicles over the past weekend. During the blitz, over 110 motorists were issued with tickets for various road traffic moving violations that included inconsiderate driving, overtaking on barrier line, using cellphone whilst driving, stopping on freeway and other moving offences.
Ninety-two drivers were found driving without licenses, 59 of the drivers were without drivers licenses while 33 had licenses but couldn’t produce them.
Forty-four motorists were issued with tickets for driving unlicensed vehicles while 23 were found driving public transport vehicles without being in possession of public driving permits and or driving wrong category of vehicles.
