The Compliance Unit from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) and Motor Transport in collaboration with the Traffic Directorate (MTTD) has once again embarked on an exercise to clamp down on the increasing usage of self-styled number plates by drivers in the country.

On this series of the #GhanaWebRoadSafety Campaign, our team joined the Compliance Unit while they conducted a stop-and-check exercise on the Spintex and the East Legon Adjiringanor road.

Several drivers who had gone contrary to the Road Safety guidelines were apprehended and educated on the road safety guidelines.

In a bid to ensure that drivers adhere to the compliance protocols on our roads, persons who were found using stylish number plates, driving without their Roadworthy stickers or driver’s license were cautioned with tickets to report to the head office of MTTD in Accra.

The team from the DVLA led by Courage Doe of the Compliance Unit ensured that Roadworthy stickers were fixed on vehicles that hadn't displayed their stickers.

Our reporter, Paulina Dedaa Opoku who joined the team observed that all self-styled number plates were destroyed with drivers tasked to use original number plates provided by the DVLA upon the registration of their car.
