The Upper East Regional Commander of the Motor Traffic and Transport Department MTTD of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Williams Kpormegbe has stated that 80% to 90% of road accidents in the region are caused by users of motorbikes and tricycles.

In an interview on DayBreak Upper East show on A1 Radio, the MTTD commander said his men were top of maintaining law and order on the roads by strategically positioning themselves at vintage spots on the roads to manage road traffic and also ensure that the traffic regulations are complied with.

The MTTD commander said users of motorbikes and motorcycles in the region behaved very well during the festive season this year and applauded their behaviour.

Touching on the recklessness of motorists that leads to damage to traffic facilities in the regional capital, Supt. Kpormegbe said the position of the law is that whoever causes damage to any government property on the road should be asked to pay for the damage. Such payments should be made to the Urban Roads Department. Failure to pay for the damage could land one in court.

The commander tasked people whose motorbikes have been confiscated because they are not registered should go and register their motorbikes else if the grace period of 21 days elapses the police will process the motorbikes for a court order to permit them to auction the machines.

He added that the new Regional Police Commander, DCOP Dr. Sayibu Pabi Gariba is passionate about fighting crime in the region especially violent crime to ensure the citizens go about their lawful duty without fear.

Supt. Kpormegbe urged road users especially drivers in the region to observe traffic regulations and also have patience towards other road users especially pedestrians and motorbikes to ensure that there is accident free on our roads.
