Thirty-one road traffic violations were detected in two separate roadblock operations by the Royal Brunei Police Force (RBPF).

Sixteen compound fines were issued to drivers who did not comply with the ‘No Entry’ and ‘No U-Turn’ signages at the exit way of the commercial premises of Kampong Sengkurong on June 9.

Officer-in-Charge of Sengkurong Police Station Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Pengiran Mohd Hafizan bin Pengiran Dato Paduka Maun led the operation.

The second roadblock by Bandar Seri Begawan (BSB) Central Police Station officers on June 10 along Jalan Tasek heading to the heart of the capital, saw 550 vehicles being checked.

Five compound fines were issued to drivers for violating Chapter 68 of the Road Traffic Act, which included expired road tax, faulty rear light and driving without a licence.

The operation was led by Assistant Officer-in-Charge of BSB Central Police Station Inspector Pengiran Mohd Noorhasni bin Pengiran Haji Omar.

The RBPF said the roadblock was held to enforce the law and regulations of the Road Traffic Act and ensure the well-being of the public, especially road users, are cared for.
