AS part of continuing efforts to reduce the incidence of road fatalities in the Western Division, Land Transport Authority officers from the region have been conducting snap check point operations.
This exercise follows the completion of the Red Zone operation where 49 vehicles were impounded, 1496 traffic infringement notices and 1319 defect issues were recorded.
LTA chief executive officer Naisa Tuinaceva says the operations were part of enforcement activities conducted daily.
"So far I haven't got any statistics from the operation team but can confirm a total of 136 bookings were made in the last two weeks," he said.
"The purpose of our operation is to maintain visibility and monitor to ensure that there is compliance on the road.
"We are not there as a stigma of fear but to ensure that there is safety compliance everywhere.
"Our presence will have an impact on motorists and we believe that every time we do this, we are saving lives," he said.
