can confirm that the National Road Safety Authority is set to ban all unprescribed motor lamps by September 30, 2021.

According to a press release sighted on September 8, 2021, the Authority has observed an emergence of the use of unprescribed lamps by some drivers, contrary to regulation 65 of the Road Traffic Regulations Act 2012 (L.I. 2180).

The practice exposes other road users to the threat of crashes especially at night.

The National Road Safety Authority will therefore collaborate with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) and the Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service and representatives of operators shall effective Monday, September 30, 2021, commence a coordinated enforcement action across the country to remove these illegal lamps and initiate prosecution of offending drivers.

The Authority admonishes drivers and vehicle owners to comply with the law to avoid any inconveniences

Records available indicates that motor crashes from January to July 2021 have claimed more than 1,706 lives with 9,299 injured. 

These deaths represent a significant increment of 29.58% from the same period in 2020.
