Taxi driver who drove off with policeman hanging on his bonnet jailed

Ofori is to serve six months on count 1 for dangerous driving contrary to Section 1 of Road Traffic Act, 683, and is also to serve 24 months on count 2 for resisting arrest contrary to Section 226 (1A) of the Criminal Offences Act 1960, (Act 29). Both sentences will run concurrently.

The court which was presided over by Her Ladyship Mercy Addei Kotei also withdrew his driver’s license for 5 years.

Commenting on the court ruling, DSP Ebenezer Tetteh, the Eastern Regional Police Public Relations officer said it sends a good signal to other drivers and road users.

Tetteh said;

“This is a warning to other drivers, especially the recalcitrant ones whose attitude and demeanour on the road is repugnant not only to road traffic users and law enforcement officers but even to pedestrians.”
