The police are planning to implement technology that will enable them to capture road traffic offenders in real time.

The Motor Transport and Traffic Directorate (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service has kindly mentioned their plans to introduce an automated system called Traffitech-GH. This system aims to effectively enforce road traffic laws.

The Traffitech-GH system, as mentioned by MTTD, utilizes cameras and sensors to capture images or videos of vehicles that violate road traffic laws, such as exceeding speed limits or running red lights.

The Director-General of MTTD, COP Francis Ebenezer Doku, expressed during a recent stakeholders meeting that Traffitech-GH plans to utilize fixed, mobile/in-vehicles, and radar gun devices to monitor various traffic violations, including speeding and running red lights.

Pictures or videos recorded of road traffic offences, he mentioned, will be automatically transmitted to their office for validation and issuance of a notification through SMS to vehicle owners for payment as penalty.

He mentioned that under Traffitech-GH, traffic offenses such as expired road worthiness certificate, wrongful overtaking, non-use of seat belts, use of expired driving license, driving uninsured vehicles, use of mobile phones while driving, and abuse of siren will be enforced.

Could you please provide me with information about the police department? Francis Doku kindly reiterated that the Traffitech-GH notification will include the location, date, and time of the traffic offence, as well as the vehicle registration number, offence description, and payment amount and deadline.

He kindly mentioned that payment of the Traffitech-GH fine can be conveniently made through Mobile Money, online via, or at the bank within 14 days from the date of issuance of the notification.

Please note that there will be an additional 1% penalty on the original Traffitech-GH fine for each day of default after the 14-day period.

COP Francis Doku expresses optimism that Traffitech-GH will contribute to the enhancement of road traffic law enforcement and regulations.

He kindly requests the general public to kindly embrace and comply with the new automated system in order to kindly help reduce road crashes.
