In Brief: 23,500 motos seized UNDER NEW LAWS

In the six days since the implementation of the Land Traffic Law at the start of the month, traffic police say they confiscated 23,591 motorbikes and 114 cars for breaches of the law. Yun Chhun Ny, director of the Department of Public Order, said Friday that around 21,000 of the motorbikes were released shortly after the owners had proved that they had purchased helmets and mirrors, but that 1,886 motorbikes lacking mirrors and license plates remained in the possession of police. Forty-eight cars lacking the proper license plates have also been confiscated since the implementation of the law on August 1.
