Government has yet again being dragged to court by civil society group, Road Safety Advocates Ghana, over the controversial bus re-branding scandal.
According to the group, the branding breaches provisions of the Road Traffic Regulations, which require that windows and windscreens of vehicles should not be tinted in a manner to impair visibility. The group insists that they have no problem with the images used, but that the material used for branding the bus breaches the law.
The branding of metro mass public buses at a cost of 3.6 million cedis caused a public stir after the story broke in December last year. The branding company, Smarttys Management and Production branded each bus for 31,000 cedis each.
