Commercial transport LPG users should possess requisite documents – Adentan MTTU Commander


Mr Dwoahene Kaakyire Asiedu Akyeapong, the Adenta MTTU Unit District Commander, has said it was compulsory for all vehicles that use Liquid Petroleum Gas to visit the DVLA and acquire the requisite documents before they operate their vehicles.

The Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Akyeampong said this at a gathering of over two hundred fifty drivers and their mates during a Road Safety Education organized at the Adenta Lorry Station.

He said the LI 2180 had been promulgated and appealed to drivers and car owners to ensure that they get their licenses/stickers, which are renewable after six months for commercial vehicles and one year for private vehicles, without fail as defaulters would be arrested and prosecuted.

The Adenta MTTU Commander also appealed to the drivers to go directly to the authorities in charge and avoid the loitering agents or “goro boys” who have not been mandated to do the work saying such agents often alter documents and if one is not careful he may think the altered document was a genuine one.

He said in 2011 his jurisdiction registered 163 accidents cases while in 2012 it recorded 240 and the vehicles involved in the accidents were 199 in 2011 and 464 in 2012 adding that the total fatal accidents were 38 for 2011 and 22 for 2012

ASP Akyeampong said road safety is the dual responsibility of the Police and the drivers and appealed to drivers to be alert and pay attention to road signs when driving since most road crashes were as a result of human factors.

He said the allowed speed limit within the townships was 30 and 40kph so that when someone inadvertently crosses them they would be able to effectively apply their brakes.

ASP Akyeampong also urged drivers to avoid the temptation of using their mobile phones whiles driving and appealed that they all procure fire extinguishers in their vehicles

Mr Vladimir S. Nortey, the Transport Officer of the Adantan Municipality, reminded drivers to check their tyres too as they had expiry dates saying many tires had a work span of not more than six years.

The CEO of Heal Our Hearts Foundation, Mrs Priscilar Agordoh, also cautioned drivers to drive carefully with reduced speed in the areas where there are a lot of school pupils and pedestrians.

She said this should be done to reduce the needless loss of lives on our streets.

Mrs Agordor explained that the Foundation often assists accident victims by paying for their hospital bills and other urgent needs.

She said the Foundation is keen to work with others besides the ‘Road Safety Education’ program it does with the Adentan MTTU and its Municipal Assembly.
