Cracking Down on Speeding: Licenses Revoked for 30 Reckless Young Drivers!

9 37

30 youths lose licences for over speeding

A total of 30 young people lost their driving licences for over speeding during an intensive anti-over speeding drive conducted by police during the last weekend, said police in a press release on Tuesday.

The intensive speed and driving behaviour control from April 19 to April 21, focused on driving speeds and particularly on the behaviour of young people in traffic.

The cold weather, however, reduced the number of offences detected, especially incidents of excessive speeding leading to the loss of a driving licence.

All the same, despite the wintry weather, persons aged under 25 were heavily represented as an age group in the statistics.

Of these, 154 persons received a traffic penalty fee, which represents 17% of the total traffic penalty fees issued, and 151 young people received fines for speeding, which is 23% of the total fines.

Of those who received speeding fines, 30 young people lost their driving licences as a result of gross negligence, which represents 45% of the total.

In addition, 12 young people are suspected of causing a serious traffic hazard, which represents 39% of the total. The remaining 5 youth driving bans resulted from something other than driving speeds.

Over the weekend, the police issued a total of 657 fines and 893 traffic penalty fees.

These figures include all fines and traffic penalty fees, not just those issued to young people. A total of 31 incidents of causing a serious traffic hazard were recorded.

Of those caught by the police, 67 were driving their vehicles in such a way that the criteria for gross negligence were met and a driving ban ensued. This means that the driving speed exceeded the maximum permissible speed by more than 30 km/h.

Automatic camera surveillance detected 2,650 speeding incidents resulting in traffic penalty fees and 70 in fines, with automated traffic surveillance vehicles accounting for 833 incidents.
