Any driver, who recklessly knocks down and destroys streets lights with his vehicle in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis, would pay for it.
Mr Roland Fynn-Wilson, Electrical Engineer of the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolitan Assembly (STMA), told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in an interview at Sekondi on Monday.
He said six street lights newly installed under the National Street Illumination Project have been knocked down and destroyed by drivers.
Mr Fynn-Wilson said the measure is to serve as deterrent to drivers and to stop further destruction of streets lights.
He said the street lights were installed about three months ago at the cost of 1,525 Dollars per pole.
Mr Fynn-Wilson said the drivers who allegedly destroyed the poles have been arrested and they would be made to pay for them.
He said 33.32 kilometres of street lights were allocated to Sekondi under the National Street Illumination Project, which was been executed by Elsewedy Electricals.
