According to Mr Akyeampong-Parry, these excessive or unapproved lights contribute to the majority of road accidents at nights claiming too many lives therefore the National Road Safety Authority is embarking on a nationwide education campaign to sensitize drivers and riders so that when prosecutions begin no one will cry over the ignorance of the law.  
 
He made this disclosure in an interview with Newsmen when National Road Safety Authority together with DVLA, Police MTTD and Media hit the streets to embark on a sensitization exercise where hundreds of unapproved lights on vehicles they came across were all removed.
