On my way to Accra on 30-12-21, this long vehicle with registration number GW 402 V, did this reckless overtaking at Kwahu Fodoa at about 9:41 am. The driver pushed oncoming vehicles off the road, at a no-overtaking zone.”

The GPS received many accolades on the internet following the arrest of this offender.
This was the first time the police service has taken an immediate action against an offender.
The truck driver [offender] is yet to be prosecuted and fined. This will serve as a lesson to all truck drivers while they adhere to road safety rules.
