Western Region Police Impound 114 Vehicles

The Western Regional Police Command,  on Friday, impounded more than 114 vehicles for various traffic offences.

Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) Francis Quainoo, the Regional Commander, told journalists that the exercise was not to witchhunt drivers, but to promote road safety with the approach of the yuletide.

Some of the vehicles were impounded mainly for lack of driving licences, broken mirrors, worn-out tyres and broken windscreens, among others.

DCOP Quainoo said the drivers had been asked to fix the faults or get the necessary papers covering their vehicles, else they would be processed for court.

Thirty-two mini buses, 18 taxis and 18 private cars were still parked at the Police Rapid Response Office, while 46 were released after the owners had complied with the orders of the command.
