Are these numbers real ? In the end 95% violations ( which are by citizens) will be cancelled by Wasta.

True concern about the speed of Pick up Vans.
We would love to see MOI authorities some action taken against Coster vehicles ( Picks up mainly nurses ) who's drivers drive so recklessly and dangerously once they enter residential areas. They see kids , elderly people , schools but has no respect to driving rules or their lives. Normally their arrogant behavior aggregates , once they enter the residential areas . MOI should arrest , put them in prison and then deport those reckless drivers.

Well done -- Keep up'''
