The police went on the attack. It will soon be present on several roads in the country every day for roadside checks. There will be no question of placing "roadblocks" on Fridays and Saturdays in the north or west.
All regions of the country will be closely monitored, officials said. A decision which follows cases of indiscipline noted in many motorists, especially motorcyclists.
They put their lives as well as that of other road users at risk. Since the beginning of the year, 33 motorcyclists and nine cyclists killed in road accidents.
Aside from discipline, the authorities found that some of the country roads are long, narrow and are not equipped with speed bumps. Thereby encouraging some speeders to graze the bar 140 Km / h.
Also, the police noted that some motorists know the time that the police conduct these checkpoints is to say between 5:00 and 6:00 in the morning and between 21 h 30 and 22 h 30 in the evening Fridays and Saturdays. This explains why the police think that the presence 24/7 on the road has become inevitable.
