The MTTD has directed all police personnel to apprehend the vehicle and its owner with customized number plat because the numbers on the plate is more than six letters.

According to a report by TV3Network, the MTTD says this practice is unacceptable under the laws of Ghana.

The Director-General of MTTD, ACP Patrick Sarpong gave the directives on Onua FM’s morning programme after complaints from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) that some people are using unapproved number plates.

He noted that in Ghana, customized numbers are allowed but the letters should not exceed six letters. This means any vehicle owner using customized number plate which is more than six letters did it on his own which goes contrary to the laws of Ghana.

ACP Sarpong explained that the DVLA has not given any authorization to these customized numbers, hence an order to arrest the two vehicles and other unauthorized ones in the country.
