Police run large-scale road check

AS PART of a large-scale traffic police effort to discipline Slovak drivers, hundreds of officers patrolled the roads and streets around the country.

The police operation, which started on November 10 and will last the whole week, was widely criticised, as many observers have doubted that a week of an excessive number of officers would teach drivers to be careful on the roads.

In the first day of the operation alone, police fined hundreds of drivers, collecting as much as Sk2.7 million (€64,000) in fines, compared to the total of Sk25 million (€595,000) for the first six months of this year.
