Dili Municipality Traffic Police in the first quarter of 2017 was able to generate in revenues to the State some $67.299.00 from traffic regulation infractions and violations.

Traffic Police Commander Inspector Matias da Silva said infractions and violations went against Ministerial Diploma No 5/2010 on the use of uniforms, violations of traffic signs and regulations, driving without a or with an expired driver’s license, and useof a non-standard or plastic number plate.
“They violated the regulations and were issued fines they had to pay directly at the Ultramarine Bank [BNU],” he said in Dili.
He added the results until June are still being completed but some 580 vehicles have been seized incurring fines of up to $8.666.00.
He added that transit operations will continue in the hopes that in time the number of infractions will reduce.
Inspector da Silva said also that despite civic education to the community and to drivers the number of infractions have not yet lowered.
“We conduct check-points and we provide civic education but drivers are still not fully aware,” he said.
Meantime, National Member of Parliament MP Cesar Valente hoped that the routine check-points will reduce the number of infractions against the law.
“We seize their vehicles, and they have to pay a fee. I believe this will make drivers more aware,” he said.
MP Valente recommended continuing raising awareness in the community about traffic regulations and this will avoid not sure fines but also accidents.
