TWO roadblocks were held by the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF) on the night of July 4 at key locations in the Belait District as part of the RBPF’s ongoing efforts to ensure motorists comply with the road regulations and to check criminal activities.

One of the roadblocks was conducted at the oil refinery area located at the fringes of Seria. Ten police officers from the Seria Police Station were involved in this operation.

Led by Assistant Officer-in-Charge of Seria Police Station, Probationary Inspector (P/Insp) Boniface anak Janlita, this operation saw two Polis 190 letters (a letter requiring the individual to produce documents at the police station) being issued to a driver whose driver’s licence had expired and another for driving without one.

Another roadblock was held at the road in front of the Panaga Police Station.

This operation, led by Officer-in-Charge of Panaga Police Station, Inspector Mikhail Iman bin Abdullah Lee alongside 11 other officers from the station, went on for the whole night.

Eleven warning notices were issued to drivers whose licence plates were not in order, in addition to other offences.

One driver was also issued a compound fine for possessing an expired driver’s licence.
