Police on Sunday morning said they issued more than 1,000 fines within 48 hours during traffic checks in all districts.

The checks were carried out between 6 am Friday and 6 am Sunday. In total 1,203 fines were issued.

According to the police, the majority of fines concerned offences “which have been proven to be the main causes of serious and fatal road accidents.”

Almost half of the fines – 586 – concern speeding and 50 the use of a mobile phone while driving.

Another 93 fines concern driving under the influence of alcohol, non-use of seatbelts, parking in spots reserved for the disabled, and failing to stop at a red light.

Police said the rest, 474 fines concern various other traffic offences.

The sole aim of the traffic checks is to make drivers realise the importance of traffic consciousness and the prevention of fatal and serious road accidents, police said.
