Espargos, Apr 14 (Inforpress) – The National Police (PN) in Sal conducts a spot check, imposing fines to “ones non-compliant” in the midst of a crisis caused by the COVID-19, at a time when the Government seeks to mitigate the effects of this pandemic with exceptional measures.
The spot check, carried out this Monday morning, caused a traffic jam for more than two hours, a line of vehicles, especially taxis, and rental vans, among amateur drivers, in Morro Curral, where the Second National Police Command is located.
Initially, it was believed that it was a “tight” police surveillance, within the scope of the guidelines of the State of Emergency, to see which vehicles were in fact authorized to circulate in the roads of the city of Espargos.
Inforpress, which was also in line for long hours, was careful to ask the purpose of this police action, having one of the agents informed that it was a spot check.
In the approach, the police asked the drivers to present the vehicle’s registration papers, car insurance and ITAC technical inspection, in addition to the Identity Card, an action considered by many to be unreasonable, taking into account the current situation in which lives the country.
