Civil Disobedience: Ghanaian Drivers Refuse To Pay Tema Motorway Toll Until The Road’s Potholes Are Fixed

Tema Motorway

In a democracy, when the people feel the government is not responding to their needs, they embark on a civil disobedience.

Civil disobedience is the active, professed refusal of a citizen to obey certain laws, demands, orders or commands of a government or occupying international power.

Now some motorists who ply the potholes filled Tema Motorway have decided to embark on a civil disobedience.

They are refusing to pay the road toll at the toll booth in protest of the government’s inability and seeming unwillingness to fix the potholes on the motorway.

People who use the Tema motorway know that the limit on the road is increased as such the drivers are more inclined to speed on the motorway.

However, with a great number of potholes on the motorway, they form little death traps scattered on the what should be a fast-paced road.

The drivers who are refusing to pay the tolls are sharing their videos on social media…

That has added some momentum to the call Ghanaians have made to the government to get the road fixed.

Maybe this will get the attention of the government. If you want to gain someone’s attention… you hit them where it hurts.

When they see the dwindling returns from the toll booth collection, they may finally decide to act.
