Takoradi, Nov. 25, GNA - The Motor Traffic and Transport Unit (MTTU) of the Ghana Police Service in the Western Region has embarked on a programme to inspect vehicles of companies to ensure their roadworthiness.
This would ensure that vehicles, especially cargo and articulated trucks of well-established firms were properly maintained to avoid accidents.
Mr. Victor Adusah-Poku, Western Regional MTTU Commander was briefing the Media after inspecting fleet of vehicles of some companies at Takoradi on Thursday.
He said it was realised that most of the vehicles of certain companies did not have spare tyres, while others had defective headlights, brake lights and traffic indicator lights.
At the Takoradi Flour Mills, Mr. Adusah-Poku ordered the management to maintain all their vehicles before they put them on the road. He said in addition, the drivers must be provided with some basic tools such as jacks, warning triangles and spare tyres before the vehicles leave the company's premises.
Mr Adusah-Poku warned that his outfit would deal drastically with recalcitrant companies and individuals who failed to comply with road signs and regulations. 25 Nov.05
