The Police Administration would soon mount a nationwide operation to arrest and prosecute all V8 vehicles who violate road traffic regulations in the country.
According to the police service, the move has become key because of the indiscriminate use of sirens and horns on the various routines in the country.
The statement was made by Acting Director-General of the Ghana Police Service’s Public Affairs Directorate, ACP Kwesi Ofori on the Anopa Bofo) morning show hosted by Kofi Adoma Nwanwani on Wednesday, December 8, 2021.
He insisted that, the police administration is determined to by hook or crook deal with all V8 drivers who infringe on road traffic regulations in Ghana through illegal means of applying sirens on the highways.
Speaking further on the canker, ACP Kwasi Ofori said they would without “fear or favor” arrest and arraign any offender to face the law in a competent court of jurisdiction.
Also, he reminded the general public that the use of V8’s sirens on the various stretches are limited to the president, his vice, security services, ambulances and other public appointees during emergencies therefore, whosoever is not entitled to the use sirens must desist from the act.
According to ACP Kwasi Ofori, the police has also observed the disturbing phenomenon of other small vehicles installing top light on their vehicles and using them to evade traffic in utter disregard for road traffic regulations.
He warned users of V8 and other vehicles to abstain from committing motor traffic offences for the sake of sanity, law and order to avoid facing the wrath of the police since there will be no mercy should any culprit be caught.
He used the opportunity to entreat the general public to cooperate with the police service to help the IGP’s dream of advancing policing to the highest level be a reality.
