    The police have begun a blitz on all highways in an effort to seize automobiles with illegal lights.

    The problems that the police will be searching for in this operation have already been outlined.

    Several private cars, public service vehicles, and motorbike owners have been seen by NPS to be using illegally installed lights, modified illuminating lights, red lights, opaque rear lights, flashing lights, flickering lights, LED illuminating bars, and unauthorized red and blue lights.

    As part of their duties, “all traffic enforcement officers around the nation have been ordered to confiscate and charge the motor vehicle, motorbike owners in compliance with relevant sections of the law,” the statement added.

    According to traffic regulations, only directional indicator lights may be flashing.

    During this operation, authorities will also be on the lookout for the use of illegal sirens.

    NPS emphasized that traffic police would need both the road service license and the tout service license for all PSVs.

    Part of the announcement said, “PSV, tour and commercial vehicle owners are recommended to verify their vehicles have appropriate licenses, including motor vehicle inspection sticker and PSV badge for the driver and conductor.

    “We urge all drivers to follow the rules outlined in the Traffic Act (Cap 403). To prevent any problems, please read Section 55 in conjunction with Traffic Rules Numbers 23 and 24 “Declared by the NPS.
