Drivers fined for traffic offences


A Kumasi Circuit Court has fined four drivers to various sums ranging from GH¢300 to GH¢600 for disobeying traffic regulations.

They are Kwadwo Oppong, Yaw Acheampong, Maxwell Nkrumah and Emmanuel Pansion all of Kumasi.

They all pleaded guilty to the offence, including causing road obstruction, driving without license and picking passengers at the wrong spot.

They were convicted on their own plea. If they fail to pay the fine, they would be imprisoned between six to 12 months each.

Prosecuting, Inspector Paul Awuah told the court presided over by Mr D.W.P. Amedior, that the drivers were arrested during a patrol conducted by the Police at the Kumasi Central Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) to check drivers who flouted traffic offences.

He said the four drivers were arrested during the operation and arraigned for committing the offences.
