About War Against Indiscipline
The #WarAgainstIndiscipline – Be the change campaign is aimed at helping to avert the increasing loss of lives through road crashes.
In May 2019, the station began the campaign against all forms of indiscipline in the country.
The exercise took the nation by surprise when it partnered with the Ghana Police Service to arrest errant drivers, process them for court and have them fined.
It covered roads noted for reckless driving within and outside Accra.
These roads include Spintex, Legon by-pass, Dawhenya, Pokuase-Amasaman, Kasoa-Weija, Adenta-Dodowa among others.
The campaign is aimed at checking indiscipline on roads and also targeted at putting regulatory bodies on their toes to ensure that the various road safety laws are enforced.
It also seeks to compel drivers to stay within speed limits.
