Some trotro and okada drivers within the Ashaiman Municipality in the Greater Accra Region,
have taken the laws into their own hands by turning part of the principal street of Ashaiman form the Ashaiman Traffic Light to the stanbic bank Branch Area and the traffic light to the Melcom supermarket /main station area into unapproved stations and loading Area for passengers traveling towards the Michael camp/Afieyna area and Tema township.
Some also operate close to fuel stations and mechanical shops.
Traders on that stretch of road on both ends have also taken over part of the road making vehicle and pedestrian movement very difficult resulting in a heavy vehicle traffic around that stretch.
It would be recalled that, a Kia truck loaded with blocks recently ran into traders and pedestrians who where engaged in buying and selling at the scene which resulted in multiple injuries and death.
All efforts and complaints lodged at the Municipal Assembly and Ghana Police Service Motor department by the GPRTU Ashaiman branch executives and other stakeholders in and around that enclave to get these drivers off the that stretch have not gotten any results.
