Traffic violations and accidents
He noted that a number of traffic violations were caught by traffic officers including driving in a procession and people sticking parts of bodies outside the windows.
He pointed out that all those who commit traffic violations, putting themselves and others in danger, will face legal consequences.
He noted that two more people were run over and killed as a result of two other drivers committing traffic violations.
He stressed that failure to abide by traffic safety rules and regulations, including not leaving enough space between vehicles while driving, as well as reckless switching of lanes and making sudden turns, are all serious violations which have caused a number of traffic accidents over the past 24 hours.
The Central Traffic Department reiterated the need for driving with caution and abiding by traffic laws and directions in order to ensure everyone's safety.
