In Brief: Traffic crackdown on cars, tuk-tuks

Phnom Penh Mayor Kep Chuktema has ordered a crackdown on car drivers not wearing seatbelts and tuk-tuks missing lights, mirrors, brakes or indicators. The campaign, due to come into force this week, is part of a renewed drive to reduce the number of traffic accidents in the capital by rigorously enforcing local traffic laws. Car drivers not wearing seatbelts will incur fines, whereas offending tuk-tuk drivers will be arrested and re-educated, said Him Yan, deputy director of the department of public order with the Phnom Penh Police.
