Motorbikes caught with a registration number would face court proceedings and fined Ghs300 after which the owner would have to register the Motorbike at the Driver And vehicle Licensing Authority before the motobike handed over to he/she.
Those with tricycle s popularly known as camboo would also pay a penalty of Ghs600 if caught in the crime of not registering their tricycles..
MASLOC personnel have started seizing tricycles from owners who have failed to conform with deposit agreements made between them and the company.
Tricycle owners are expected to pay a daily charge of Ghs 50.00 which some are reluctant to pay.
