inkAttention drivers and friends in Urben:

Not at the traffic lights!
Victorian police have begun to dress up
Acting as a car scrubber
Specialize in driving and playing with mobile phones
38 people were caught in one day!
And the law enforcement location is near the Chinese district
A Chinese driver has already encountered such a thing!
According to the driver broke the news on the Chinese forum, things happenedyesterday morning.
He was driving from MelbourneIntersection of Springvale Rd and Whiterhorse Rdafter.
While waiting for the red light, suddenly came over and looked likeCar cleanerPeople seem to be preparing to wipe the car window glass.
But the younger brother took a closer look and found that it seemed not quite right:The car cleaner only has a brush, not even a spray tool...
Take a closer look,
The walkie-talkie is pinned behind the other party’s waist
When this little brother thought the other party was a senior car cleaning team, the one in front of him
The driver who is playing on the phone
I got caught!
At this moment, the car cleaner skillfully took out the walkie-talkie and recognized the eldest brother's license plate.
Then the eldest brother was at an intersection ahead and was taken by the police to another small road for processing.
Only then did the little brother react,
It turns out that the car cleaner is a policeman in disguise
The purpose is to catch drivers who drive and play with mobile phones!
(Netizen: the palm of the hand in tears)
My brother couldn’t help but sigh, this is the first time I have encountered this kind of thing in Australia for so many years...
Moreover, the police routine is really impossible to guard against...
Coincidentally, on the same day, another driver also posted,
There are police officers disguised as car cleaners
Specialize in catching drivers who drive and play mobile phones at intersections
The place is rightThe intersection of Springvale Rd and Maroondah Hw.
Once a driver is found playing with a mobile phone, these disguised "car cleaners" will use the walkie-talkie to notify the uniformed police waiting 200 meters away, and then give the driver
issue a fine!
In a statement to Daily Mail,
Victoria Police also confirmed this
The police said that yesterday, Forest Hill police launched a traffic enforcement operation in the Nunawading district to crack down on drivers who were distracted by driving.
Part of the enforcement action is to conceal the identity and secretly observe what the driver will do when the vehicle is stationary.
As a result, it has been very rewarding!
38 drivers in one day
Was fined for driving and playing on the phone!
According to Victorian regulations, the penalties for playing mobile phones while driving are:
4 points deducted
It is estimated that yesterday’s fine was reached.$ 18,392.
In addition, Xiaowei wants to emphasize to everyone here:
You can’t use your mobile phone while driving, not only when the vehicle is in motion, but alsoThe vehicle is stationary but not in the parking spaceCircumstances, such as waiting for a red light.
Cannot play with mobile phones while driving!
You can't play while waiting for the red light!
Otherwise, you will get a ticket!
Finally, I would like to attach Victoria's detailed regulations on driving and playing with mobile phones, please keep in mind!
No matter what the purpose is while driving
Cell phones are strictly prohibited
Even in hands-free mode
If your car is at a standstill but not parked in the parking space (for example, waiting for a red light), you cannot use your mobile phone in this case, otherwise you will be fined for failing to discuss.
Can make and receive calls while driving
Or use the phone’s music/audio playback
The mobile phone must be fixed to a special mobile phone holder, and the holder must also be fixed to the car;
Or you can operate without touching the phone, but you can't put the phone on any part of your body.
All other functions are strictly prohibited
Including video calls, texting, emailing, etc.
So let's forget about this kind of photo by using Weibo and friends circle.
Violation of the above regulations:
$484 fine, 4 demerit points
Apply the same rules
In other words, you must fix the mobile phone on the bracket and the bracket on the vehicle before you can make and receive calls, use the music/audio playback function of the mobile phone, or the mobile navigation function.
But other functions are prohibited.
Violation of the rules will be$484 fine.
I hope everyone strictly abides by the traffic regulations.
