By gna

The new Kasoa Police Commander, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Jordan Quaye has warned that his administration would not tolerate any act of indiscipline, that might lead to destruction of life and property within Kasoa or on the Kasoa-Winneba-Cape Coast road.

He has therefore appealed to passengers and transport union executives to educate drivers on the causes of accident that include over speeding, over loading, dangerous driving, drunk driving and non observance of traffic regulation.

DSP Quaye gave the warning in an interview with Ghana News Agency in Winneba soon after handing over the Administration of the Winneba Police Command to ASP Francis Yiribaary.

DSP Quaye who expressed concern over the increasing number of accidents on the Accra-Winneba-Cape Coast roads in recent times and said the police in the area would continue to do their best to bring the situation under control.

He said five accident prone areas have been identified on the Winneba Kasoa road but drivers still ignored signals around those areas, resulting in accidents.

For the past three months about eight accidents have occurred on the Apam-Winneba-Accra road claiming so many lives and properties, with the one at Gomoa Okyereko this March alone claiming eleven lives.

Touching on crime fighting at Kasoa, the new Kasoa Police Commander said day and night patrols would be intensified and called for public cooperation to help reduce crime in the district.
