15 penalty tickets, five cautions and one application for punishment at court – this is a summary of the last installment of the “Safe Return” campaign. MPK controllers and city guards on Friday to Saturday night once again reminded passengers of the rules of travel by public transport.
During the operation, over three ‘day time’ lines (No. 3, 14 and 18) and three night lines (No. 62, 64 and 69) were inspected. According to the city guard, the most common offenses were: alcohol consumption, smoking in vehicles and at stops, littering and disturbing public order.
Ticket inspectors checked whether communication passengers remember about tolls. During the campaign, they issued a total of 15 penalty tickets for the lack of a valid ticket.
It was the second installment of the “Safe Return” campaign, as part of which MPK traffic inspectors, riding in their civilian clothes, pay attention to all behaviors that disturb passengers, including for smokers, alcohol drinkers, littering, aggressive and vulgar behavior.
In the event of a threat to the safety of travelers, city guards are notified who are driving a police car in close proximity to the controlled bus or tram.
