Three days after the coming into force of the new law, the authorities accumulated only 454 fines, little more than half a fine for each of the 700 transit officials. Most traffic offenses were: no valid car inspection (79), not using seat-belts (60) and motorcyclists without safety vests (57).

The fines amount to ?47.000 for not having a valid car inspection or no safety vest and ?94.000 for not using the seat-belt.

The transit officers should have enough information to apply the new law, even though their training will end on November 17.

Road safety comes first! But we drivers do not like this sentence, not my brother! But what to do, but it's all done for the good of all traffic participants and even ourselves. Of course no one likes traffic police, but it is our duty to obey traffic laws. Therefore, fellow drivers, be smart, and respect traffic rules!
