Following the Road and Transport Committee of Parliament’s approval of a mandatory towing levy, the debate on the issue has gotten even more heated with mixed reactions from citizens.
Many national stakeholders and groups have lambasted government for pushing a levy when there are are other means of decongesting the streets in the country.
With the discussion gaining traction, evidence of the situation on our roads now puts the levy in a different light, perhaps.
Facebook user, Desmond Tutu, uploaded photos of an accident on the Asoboi road, along the Nkawkaw bypass.
A carrier track and a saloon car were involved in said accident, however it seems the vehicles have remained at the scene of the accident with no towing vehicle in sight.
The situation prompted the Facebook use to ask: “Just met this at Asoboi, on the Nkawkaw bypass. A case in point for the compulsory tow tax or Nay?”
The instance of such abandoned accident scenes are not uncommon our streets, however, it does call one to question what efficient measures are necessary to resolve these issues
According to them, there were already laws and policies in place to effectively manage the towing systems on our roads, but government is rather finding other ‘lackadaisical’ means to solve a problem which already has its solution.
