Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo has indicated that owners of broken down vehicles will now pay for the cost of towing their vehicles after the service has been provided.

The Minister made this known during a meeting with the owners of towing companies in Accra on Tuesday.

"Today we will end up asking you to go and register the services you provide. Naturally, people will have some questions and we want to listen to your concerns if any because this policy which was supposed to start has been stopped.

"There is the need to provide that service so we are asking those who have the capacity to provide the service to register through the appropriate ministry and provide the service to those who need it, and those who receive the services to pay for it,” he said.

The Senior Minister met the various towing companies in Accra to plan on the way forward towards removing broken down vehicles on the road.

This comes almost three weeks after the government halted the implementation of the controversial mandatory towing levy.

The government appeared to have listened to the cry of the people when it decided to halt the plan to charge motorists a compulsory levy for towing services.

Meanwhile, the government’s directive for the towing companies to register with the Transport Ministry for work to begin has not gone down well with some of the companies.

They argue that the proposal by the government has never been successful in the past.
