Road Transportation still remains the major means of transport in Ghana.  However, road transportation in Ghana is saddled with many safety challenges making our roads unsafe and susceptible to preventable road traffic fatalities and injuries.  Due to the above, Ghana has Road Traffic Laws and Regulations established to define the scope of our behavior towards each other as road users.

The laws also regulate the use of motorized vehicles and the general road environment.  The Motor Traffic and Transport Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service is by law, mandated to enforce road traffic regulations.  In simple terms, road laws, are made to ensure discipline and safety on our roads.  The key legal books used for enforcement are the Road Traffic Act 683 and its amended version, the Road Traffic Regulation 2012 L.I 2180 and the Ghana Highway Code 1974.

In road Safety, Enforcement is usually cited by all key players as the weakest link in the safety equation.  It is believed that all the necessary laws and Regulations required are in place and rather needs a professional, well-resourced and dedicated enforcement officers including the elimination of certain upstream challenges like interference in enforcement and politicization.

Our Heroes

Lance Corporal Robert Ackah

It’s not always easy or “convenient” being a police officer, but it is a noble calling. And the Ghana is fortunate that the members of our police service are all honourable men and women, dedicated to serving and protecting the citizens of our community. They sacrifice of their time, their talents….and sometimes their very own lives.
On this page we honour several brave and dedicated men from the Ghana Police Service: men and women who – in dangerous situations – were reaching out to help those in need of their services and ultimately paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is with great honor that we dedicate this section to them – to let their families know that who they were, and what they stood for, remains steadfast in our hearts and our minds. We are proud to call them our brothers and sisters. We will be forever thankful that they chose to serve their country.
