Citi TV’s War Against Indiscipline campaign with the Ghana Police Service moved to the Kaneshie-Weija stretch on Thursday where some 19 drivers were arrested.

Those arrested included an Uber driver who was caught in the web only last week when Citi TV held operations at the East Legon Tunnel and was subsequently fined over GHC1,000.

The arrested drivers are expected to appear before the City Campus Circuit Court on Thursday.

Public Affairs Officer for the Ghana Police Service, ACP Simon Tenku, explained to Citi News that Thursday’s exercise targeted bus stops that have been turned into roadside lorry stations.

The War Against Indiscipline was started by Citi TV in May 2019 and since police stepped into partner the station, the campaign has been able to name, shame and punish persons who break road traffic regulations.

Offenders have been found driving on the shoulder of roads, driving against traffic, recklessly overtaking among others.

Some of the high profile arrests have seen the Tarkwa Nsuaem MP, George Mireku Duker and the Kade MP, Kwabena Ohemeng Tinyaase.

As of July 17, Citi TV‘s collaboration with the Ghana Police Service had accumulated GHC258,000 in fines for the state.
