Citi TV’s War Against Indiscipline campaign experienced its most dramatic exercise on the Legon bypass as influential persons like Member of Parliament for Kade, got arrested but challenged the Police.

Kwabena Ohemeng Tinyaase challenged the police for arresting his driver and taking away his license.

The incensed lawmaker was upset that he was arrested by law enforcers while on his way to make laws.

Other notable persons stopped included Colonel Joseph Azar Akampachab, who was arrested for driving against traffic with his flashlights and a New Patriotic Party big wig who works at the Controller and Accountant Generals Department.

The offending drivers will be processed for the Abeka Motor Court.

Achimota Police station will serve as the hold-up area for the impounded vehicles.

Over 100 drivers have so far been arrested and put before court for breaking traffic regulations as part of the campaign which has hit areas like Dawhenya, Spintex and the Tema Motorway.

Offenders have been receiving fines between GHc600 and GHc1000.
