The Police Wireless Message which was meant for the top hierarchy of the service also indicated that the Highway Patrol Units are to check for other things but not vehicle documents and driver’s license.

“The highway patrol units are only to check for arms/ammunition and drugs. No vehicle documents and drivers licenses are to be inspected by highway patrol.”

“Regional /Divisional /District and Unit Commanders are to ensure that no permits are issued for motor check duties,” the memo added.

Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur explained on Citi-FM what the directive was: "What we are suspending is checking documentation of vehicles, the tyres of vehicles, your wiper, your tail light and others," he said.

On Joy FM he has also said this should help regulate the traffic flow in most congested parts of the country, but routine crime checks will remain in force.
