The Minister of Transport Kwaku Asiamah says lack of education and broad consultation on the section 102 of the Road Traffic Regulation L.I. 2180 which deals with the towing of broken down vehicles forced the Ministry to suspend the implementation of the law.
He noted that even though a contract has been signed and a road map designed for the enforcement of the Act, it appears education did not go down well with the public hence the suspension.
The Transport Minister stated this on the Floor of Parliament when he appeared to respond to an urgent question on the matter.
The question which stood in the name of the MP for Nsawam-Adoagyire Frank Annoh-Dompreh was on why the implementation of the Road Traffic Regulation, 2012 L.I. 2180 has been put on hold.
The Minister explained that it is not the entire Legislative Instrument that has been put on hold but just section 102.
There was public uproar over the implementation of the section 102 of the Road Traffic Regulation L.I. 2180 which deals with the towing of broken down vehicles on the roads.
The Act seeks to charge motorists across board for the towing of broken down vehicles on the roads.
