The Ghana Police have launched a campaign to clamp down on road traffic violations, especially those by politicians.
Three months ago, police picked up MP for Nyiaeso, Dr Stephen Amoah, for a similar road traffic offence.
He was arrested together with six other drivers for failing to comply with road traffic regulations in December last year, around the Airport by-pass.
The offenders, including Dr Amoah, were charged with offences such as careless driving, dangerous driving and causing road obstruction, among others.
In the statement issued over the latest arrest, police have urged members of the public – including persons in high offices – to respect the road traffic laws.
The Airport Divisional Police MTTD led the latest exercise that got Mr Buah and the others arrested.

This was revealed when GIS officials accompanied a group of journalists to the KIA’s Terminal 3 arrival hall to see the process as part of the official launch of the Ghana Card as an ICAO-compliant travel document on March 1.
