National Consultative Forum On Road Traffic Crashes And Review Of The Road Traffic Regulations 2012, L.I. 2180

The Road Traffic Regulations was passed by Parliament in July 2012 to give effect to the enforcement of the Road Traffic Act 2004, (Act 683). To date, significant provisions of the regulations have been implemented and enforcement is ongoing whilst some of the provisions are also yet to be implemented due to identified technical and legal deficiencies associated with them.

There are also emerging practices in the road transport industry that have necessitated the need for the review to control their potential adverse repercussions and also adopt international best practices.

In this regard, the General Public is respectfully invited to a National Consultative Forum scheduled for Wednesday 13th October 2021 at 10:00 am at the Ghana Shippers’ House, Accra. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, in-person attendance is strictly by registration for a limited period only.
