Over 500 fines issued for various traffic offences overnight  

Police said they had issued 544 fines on Thursday and early Friday islandwide during road policing for speeding and other traffic offences and also caught, among others, a 15-year-old boy riding a motorcycle without a licence, insurance or plates.

During searches, officers also found, in the vehicles of five people, assault weapons, more specifically, two batons, one brass knuckle, 15 knives, and a number of cartridges.

A patrol caught the 15-year-old riding a motorcycle without licence plates, without a driver’s licence, insurance, or helmet and he was charged for those offences as well as for failing to obey officers’ instructions.

Another motorist was driving with a revoked licence, and a driver of a truck with badly damaged tyres and without a licence, carrying a farming machine and going 16 kilometres per hour instead of the 65 minimum.

During the road policing campaign, police issued 231 tickets for speeding and 313 fines for other traffic offences.

Road policing, police said, is a “modern, international way of policing which effectively contributes to preventing road accidents and in general, tackling crime.”
