POLICE are concerned with the number of public service vehicle drivers who do not carrying their driver's licence while driving.
This was revealed as the police's Operation Blitz continued into its ninth day in the Western Division.
Director for Traffic Senior Superintendent of Police Mahesh Mishra said they had charged about 880 drivers for various traffic infringements.
"We have noticed that drivers who do not have licences are risking the lives of their passengers," SSP Mishra said.
He said passengers travelling in a public service vehicle should demand to see the driver's license as it is their right to do so.
SSP Mishra also warned drivers there would be a zero tolerance policy on drivers offering money to police officers.
"These drivers will be arrested and taken to task," he said.
SSP Mishra said the police were committed to taking high risk drivers off the roads.
And he said they had called for co-operation from the public as they worked towards their goal.
Police have urged members of the public to be vigilant on the roads.
"People can do their part by ensuring that drivers follow the road rules and they should demand for a safe drive as it is their lives at stake.
"They should know what the risk factors are before boarding vehicles," SSP Mishra said.
