The Municipality of Utrecht (Pillar Transport and Logistics - GSPB) organized a major traffic subversion check on Wednesday afternoon and evening 12 April. The control street took place in Utrecht Noord and Noordoost: in the afternoon on Koningsweg and in the evening on Hengeveldstraat. The Municipality (W&I and OOV), the Police, Forensic Investigation and the Nodaal team, the Tax and Customs Administration and the Vehicle Crime Insurance Agency (VbV) participated in this action.

The objective of the traffic/subversion control is to increase road safety and, in addition, to take repressive action in the areas of subversion, violation of tax legislation, excise duty evasion, WWM and opium-related offences. In tackling subversion, it is important to be visible and to act like a government.

Public-private partnership
In short, a good example of public-private partnership, which, in addition to visibility in the neighbourhoods, has also produced good information and results.

Several checks will be organized in the city districts in the coming months.
