It gives me great joy to see all of you gathered here this morning for this very important exercise to announce the ban on Aboboyaa on major highways and its related issues. Indeed, your presence here is a clear indication of your commitment towards curbing indiscipline on our roads and making sure the goals of the Agenda “Let’s Make Greater Accra Work” become a reality.

Ladies and Gentlemen, as part of efforts by the Regional Co-ordinating Council under the “Let’s Make Greater Accra Work” agenda in ensuring strict regulatory compliance with LI 2180, the Greater Accra Regional Security Council (REGSEC) has noted with concern the spate of gross indiscipline on our roads especially, by Motorcycle and Tricycle Riders. Inasmuch as citizens have the right to own and ride Motorcycles and Tricycles, they must be done by the Road Traffic Regulations (2012) L. I 2180.

Further to this, REGSEC in collaboration with the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service, the National Road Safety Authority (NRSA), and the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), intends to rigorously enforce road traffic regulations in the metropolis through a joint task force, particularly in the area of crossing traffic lights when it turns red, riding without a license, the use of an unregistered motor bicycle or tricycle and riding without the appropriate gear.

Effective November 1st 2021, no motorized tricycle (Aboboyaa) should ply the motorway. (This is just for Aboboyaa)

However, in line with the intended exercise, all motorized tricycles in particular motorcycle and tricycle riders should keep away from all major highways and principal streets and restrict their operations to community riding by February 1st 2022.

All owners of unregistered or uninsured Motorcycles and Tricycles shall have up to Tuesday, November 30 2021 to regularize their documentation. Non-compliance to this directive shall be the basis for legal action. Where the Motorcycles and Tricycles remain unregistered, owners or riders must possess and provide valid customs/shipping documentations.

All unlicensed Motorcycle and Tricycle Riders shall be arrested, prosecuted, and be made to acquire a valid Rider’s license.

All Motorcycle and Tricycle Riders shall observe all road traffic regulations. Riders who cross the red light as well as violate other traffic regulations shall be arrested and prosecuted.

All Motorcycle, Pillion Riders, and Tricycle Riders shall wear the appropriate gears i.e. reflective jackets, helmets, knee and elbow protectors, and boots where applicable.

All Motorcycles shall not carry more than two persons i.e. the rider and pillion.

All Offenders will have their motorcycles/tricycles impounded. Offenders will be given a maximum of one month to show cause why the bikes should not be disposed of by CI 76 f the Ghana Police Service.

Ladies and Gentlemen, on this note I would kindly urge you all to support this campaign with sensitization and massive education programmes to create awareness among the citizenry in our collective efforts to make Greater Accra work.
