The Tamale Metropolitan Assembly is to impound stray animals found roaming the streets of the metropolis.

The Metropolitan Chief Executive of Tamale, Mr Mohammed Amin Adam said the Assembly will also impose heavy fines on their owners to bring sanity on the roads.

Mr Adam announced at the launch of the first United Nations Global Road Safety Week, on the theme: "Improving safety for young road users", in Tamale.

The Assembly had observed that stray animals were responsible for some of the accidents in the metropolis and also cause nuisance by littering the streets.

He said the Assembly had decided to impound all stray animals on the streets and their owners would be made to pay a fine of ¢500,000 for a sheep one million cedis per a cow before their animals would be returned to them.

He said those who failed to pay the fines after a stipulated time would have the animals auctioned or given to schools for their meals.

Mr Adam noted that another major cause of road accidents in the metropolis was indiscipline on the part of drivers and other road users who carelessly parked their vehicles or cars at "no parking areas", causing unnecessary congestion.

The MCE said following the recent rainstorm that hit the metropolis a ¢4.5 billion contract had be signed to install new streetlights and rehabilitate the broken down ones.

He said government had already spent about ¢150 billion to improve upon road infrastructure in the metropolis.
