Luke Allo (58) walks again every Thursday tonight in the wake of the traffic police. For this, the reporter followed the police teams in the regions of Ghent and Saint Niklas day and night. Traffic police often have unforeseen situations on the road and have to respond to everything. You can’t imagine what happens during their working hours,” says Allo.
One of the people the police and Alo encountered is truck driver Victor. He is being reprimanded for driving 37 minutes for too long, thus disrespecting his driving and rest times. He tells the story of his life in the police room. “I’ve been driving the truck for 20 years. This is only the fourth fine.” “My job is stressful, but I don’t feel comfortable going out anymore. I don’t drink anymore. I used to have a serious accident after a night out. My brother died as a result. This won’t let me go.”
Alloo and the traffic police are still waiting: improperly parked cars, angry drivers and speed demons. Like Johnny, who drives 75 kilometers per hour in zone 50. “I actually ran away once during the police work. It cost me 800 euros. Crazy reaction.” “It’s been a long time since I’ve been fined now.”(eadp)
