Mo­re than 200 mo­tor­cy­clists re­cei­ve traf­fic fi­ne

Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

The Traf­fic Con­trol Team (VHT) of the Po­li­ce For­ce Su­ri­na­me (KPS) hand­ed out 272 traf­fic fi­nes to mo­tor­cy­clists in Oc­to­ber. Po­li­ce In­spec­tor Lly­od To­lud, head of the VHT, told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me that 133 mo­tor­cy­clists ro­de a mo­tor­cy­cle that had not been in­spec­ted or rein­spec­ted. 66 of them had not stay­ed on the cy­cle track and 55 mo­tor­cy­cles did not ha­ve in­su­ran­ce. To­lud poin­ted out that 18 mo­tor­cy­clists we­re ri­ding around wit­hout a li­cen­se pla­te. “The mo­tor­cy­clists must ma­ke su­re that his or her mo­tor­cy­cle has been in­su­red be­fo­re par­ti­ci­pa­ting in traf­fic. The pro­blems start when they cau­se a traf­fic ac­ci­dent. They will then ha­ve to co­ver all the da­ma­ges from their own poc­ket.” To­lud ma­de it clear that it is man­da­to­ry for mo­tor­cy­clists and cy­clists to ri­de on a cy­cle track whe­re­ver the­re is one.

He ex­plai­ned that fai­lu­re to ri­de on the cy­cle track re­sults in a fi­ne of SRD 75. Not all cy­cle tracks are in good con­di­ti­on but ri­ding on a cy­cle track is sa­fer that ri­ding on a bu­sy road,” said To­lud.
