A private legal practitioner, Nii Kpakpo Addo, has commended Citi TV for it’s War Against Indiscipline campaign.
The lawyer on Citi FM/TV‘s current affairs and news analysis programme, The Big Issue said the campaign has made it easier for the police to arrest persons who flout traffic regulations.
He thus called on Ghanaians to support the campaign.
“I think Citi TV must be congratulated. It is good to do more than just talk. What you people have done is to empower the Police to do their work. We should list the Commissioners and others who are all misusing the sirens.”
Government has been able to rake in over GHc100,000 from Citi TV‘s War Against Indiscipline (WAI) Campaign launched in May 2019.
The campaign, which has received massive support from the police service, has seen over 200 drivers arrested and put before court for various traffic offences.
The errant drivers have been slapped with fines ranging from GHc600 to GHc1,000.
As of July 1, 2019, a total amount of GHc105,560 had been collected from drivers nabbed for breaking traffic regulations on the Accra-Tema motorway, Spintex and Dawhenya roads.
