Henry Quartey orders the arrest of people clamping down on cars

Chairman of the Greater Accra Regional Coordinating Council (RCC), Henry Quartey has instructed the police to arrest individuals who are found clamping vehicles in the region.

He bemoaned the series of complaints from some members of the public about the incessant clamping of vehicles at unlawful places.

The Minister posited that these individuals who engage in the act are said to be from private entities contracted by the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) and other assemblies in the capital.

“The Regional Coordinating Council is directing that with immediate effect, all clamping in the Central Business District in Accra stops, and we are saying it takes effect now. The firms are to come with their documents to the respective assemblies. Anybody found clamping or enforcing traffic regulations should be arrested by the police.”

The Minister was speaking during an engagement with private firms.

“A committee will be formed immediately which will involve the National Road Safety Authority, Ghana Police Service and a rep from the assemblies to look at the bye-laws that give them authority to engage the services of the private firms to do traffic enforcement. We think that, it should be properly coordinated in consultation with the Ghana Police Service to provide training to these entities”, he added.
