As part of a campaign to enhance traffic enforcement activity in accident-prone areas, police and additional combined forces recorded 632 traffic tickets last weekend, reports 0404 News. The intensive police activity was concentrated on Route 60, the north-south road stretching from Nazareth to Beer Sheva that passes through Judea and Samaria, and on additional roads in Judea and Samaria, all open to Arabs and Jews, where violations of driving laws are unusually prevalent.

Most enforcement focused on driving in a manner that endangers others and aggressive, bullying driving. Other tickets were listed as follows:

21 driver licenses were disqualified;
11 defective vehicles were taken off the road;
12 vehicles were prohibited for use;
32 tickets were issued for use of cellular phones while driving.

In a Kiryat Arba-area enforcement operation the Dvora speed detection system caught an Arab-driven vehicle driving at a speed of 153 kilometers per hour (95 mph) on a section of road with a speed limit of 80 kilometers per hour (50 mph).

Additionally, in a Route 60 enforcement operation between Beit Haggai junction, located east of Beit Hagai and the town of Beit Haggai, an Arab vehicle traveling at a speed of 148 kilometers per hour (91 mph) was caught in a section of road with a speed limit of 80 kilometers per hour (50 mph).

In other activity at the same location, another driver was caught traveling at a speed of 145 kilometers per hour (90 mph). The driver's license was suspended for 30 days and he was summoned to traffic court.
