According to ACP Driu, 118 speeding tickets have been issued.

He said speeding and drunk driving are two of the leading causes of traffic fatalities, and despite repeated warnings and advisories, this remains a problem.

The Police Traffic Division also recorded 44 fatalities last year and 25 in 2021.

ACP Driu says drivers need to change their attitude and urges everyone to speak up and report anyone who continues to be reckless.

He said traffic police will be out in large numbers today as more travel is expected following the Christmas and New Year festivities.
