The police issued over 7,000 traffic tickets in the first seven days in which the new Road Traffic Act and regulations came into force.
That’s a rate of over 1,000 tickets per day.
The Constabulary’s Public Safety and Traffic Enforcement Branch, PSTEB, says annually over 400,000 tickets are issued by the police for various breaches.
Assistant Commissioner of Police, Gary McKenzie, is head of PSTEB.
He says the police have noticed positive changes in some areas.
He says he hopes more people will conform to the law.
