Police controlling vehicles on Wednesday afternoon.
PHILIPSBURG–Police traffic controls continued in the parking lot opposite ACE Mega store on A.J.C. Brouwer Road on Wednesday. Police said on Thursday that 138 cars were
stopped during the controls, 21 cars were confiscated and fined for not having paid their 2019 road tax and two were fined for not having vehicle insurance.
Some 22 drivers were in violation of the tint laws and had to remove the tint from the vehicle’s windows on the spot, and six drivers had to remove covers that were blocking the visibility of their number plates.
If drivers do not wish to place the new “Carnival plates” on their vehicle, they are urged to place the sticker issued by the Census Office on the front windshield of the vehicle and have the new plates in the vehicle at all times. Drivers who opt to place the sticker on their windshield must have their 2018 plates on the front bumper and the rear of the car.
Motorists who have not yet paid their 2019 motor vehicle tax are now at risk of being fined during controls began as of Thursday, March 21.
