They would also deploy radar guns, breathalyzers and tyre gauge, to make sure that the right things were done.
He told the Ghana News Agency (GNA) that no effort would be spared to help drivers to operate within the traffic regulations, to prevent innocent lives from being lost, people from getting maimed and having to live with permanent deformities.
Chief Supt Gyimah said more officers would be out there to direct both vehicular and human traffic.
He said there could be no doubt that their very presence would discourage people from breaking the law.
The MTTU Commander also spoke of plans to step up safety education campaign for drivers to check indiscipline and recklessness.
He encouraged passengers to be bold to report drivers who showed careless disregard for safety.
He said all should accept responsibility and help to bring down carnage on the roads.
