The Ghana Police Service has said that more than 8 tricycle operators have been fined for using their tricycles to transport humans to and from the central business district in Bolgatanga. This was after the Police gave a stern caution against the practice.
The operators were fined between Ghc400.00 and Ghc1,200.00.
This came to light when the Public Affairs Officer of the Upper East Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service, Assitant Superintendent of Police (ASP) David Fianko Okyere spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, April 19, 2022.
ASP Fianko Okyere said the exercise has been a resounding success.
“It has been very successful. If you do not start something, you will keep on giving excuses. Since we started this exercise, we have been able to send more than 8 motorking riders to courts. They have been fined various sums of money ranging from Ghc400.00 to Ghc1,200.00”.
“On our roads now, yes, you will see the motorkings but you will not see them being used to transport people. That is what we want to avoid because it was causing a lot of accidents and people were losing their lives,” he said.
