Furthermore, the Traffic services carried out special outings and targeted checks, especially in large urban centers, to deal with delinquent and dangerous-anti-social driving behaviors, with the aim of the smooth and safe movement of citizens and the safeguarding of human life.

249.090 traffic checks of vehicles were carried out and 81.290 violations were confirmed, for which the corresponding administrative fines were imposed.
