New police safety campaign to stop Y-plate vehicles too

Date Posted: 2005-04-07

A nationwide Spring traffic safety campaign is focusing on everything from drunk driving to parking tickets.

Senior police officials promise a stringent campaign, with many checkpoints across the country. Okinawa will have its share of checkpoints, and this year’s campaign is extending to stopping American vehicles with Y Plates for inspection and violations.

March saw traffic fatalities rising, with nighttime accidents increasing heavily. Seven senior citizens died when careless drivers failed to see them. Some elderly citizens were struck while outside pedestrian crosswalks, but police emphasize that doesn’t change driver responsibilities.
They do encourage elderly citizens to “please use the pedestrian points to cross the street, and wear more bright, eye catching colors when you dress.” Dark color clothes are difficult to see, the police remind people.

Checkpoints will be rotated, and extensively manned. Police will be checking for unlicensed drivers, unregistered and insured cars, and drunk driving. They’ll also be cracking down on illegal parking.
