Transit Police of Dili municipality seized 579 vehicles including cars and motorcycles that broke traffic regulations during the presidential campaigning period.

Transit police commander for Dili municipality, Chief Inspector Matias da Silva said the 597 vehicles included 363 motorcycles and 234 cars.

He said the motorcycles seized were because of noisy exhaust pipes, did not have mirrors, or did not display a license plate or did not have the required legal documents.

"We seized many motorcycles because of noise levels due to short exhaust pipes,” he said in Dili.

Regarding cars, he added those seized were mostly private cars without proper documents but the police also seized busses, taxis and minibuses with dark tinted windows or because drivers were not using their uniforms and some because of lack of  documents.

He said some of the offenders already paid the required fine and collected their vehicle but he urged them not to break transit regulations again. 

Meanwhile during the campaigning period in Dili the police raised a total of $10.579 in revenue to be deposited in the state’s coffer.

Meanwhile national MP David Diaz Ximenes praised the work of the police to ensure security and for conducting rigorous and effective checkpoints during the electoral campaigning period. 

"They did a good job and their presence and demeanor is very professional," he said.

MP Ximenes urged PNTL to preserve and maintain security during the whole election period so voters can participate in a peaceful election.
