Apart from the MTTD, none of the above mentioned officers on highway patrol/barrier duties are deployed to specifically conduct motor check e.g. inspecting driver’s licenses, road worthy and insurance certificates, etc. However, any Police officer can conduct traffic related checks based on reasonable suspicion of a road traffic offence but will have to immediately hand over the case to the Police MTTD after the preliminary action. 9. Motorists are cautioned to adhere to traffic laws on the road.

The Police Administration therefore appeals to the public to give maximum cooperation and wish to assure the public that such complaints when received will be expeditiously dealt with.
