She says she received a call from the police on Sunday morning informing her that her father had been the victim of an accident on the highway near Trianon. According to Aditee, the driver dragged his father's motorcycle for a few meters before continuing on his way. “Li tap ar li, trenn li lor semin, apre kit li kontign ale,” she explains.

Compulsory wearing of seat belts: toughening of tone proves effective

At the Central Barracks, Inspector Shiva Coothen of the Police Public Relations Office specifies that the toughening of the tone vis-à-vis the law making the wearing of seat belts compulsory for all passengers in a vehicle is effective. He specifies that the police have issued quite a few tickets for the offense of non-wearing of seat belts by passengers in the rear seats. “Each time, two fines are issued. First the driver and second the passenger if he is an adult. » This is the offense of “failing to wear seatbelt” under the Road Traffic Act, explains Shiva Coothen.
