Road Safety Campaigns & STEP Operations

Road safety campaigns and traffic operations focusing on different road users are held throughout the year taking into account the prevailing trend of traffic accidents and related offences. Campaigns are designed to educate road users of good road use standards and encourage responsible road users. During STEP operations, concerted enforcement actions will be taken against those road users who choose to contravene the STEP offences.
