During the last 24 hours, due to the non-compliance with the restrictions, the police issued 597 tickets, 589 people were instructed, and in 177 cases an application for punishment was made to the court. The vast majority of it was about not complying with the order to wear a mask.
According to police data, 548 out of 597 issued tickets related to non-compliance with the order to wear a muffler. This case also concerned 131 out of 177 court applications. The remaining cases in which the police applied sanctions related, inter alia, to breaches of the assembly ban.
Over 16,000 checks
In total, since the beginning of the activities related to the control of compliance with the restrictions, the police have issued over 606,000 fines. Over 425,000 times, the officers used instructions against people, and in almost 105,000 cases they referred a motion for punishment to the court.
During the last 24 hours, the police also carried out 16,439 checks on public road transport, commercial establishments and other places controlled in connection with the introduction of the epidemic. So far, over 4.4 million such inspections have been carried out.
Since Saturday Some of the restrictions related to counteracting the pandemic were eased. It is no longer necessary to wear masks in the open air – covering the nose and mouth, however, remains obligatory in closed spaces, including in shops or public transport.
Before the beginning of the weekend, the Police Headquarters reminded that loosening the restrictions does not mean their complete lifting, and the policemen will invariably check whether they are respected. – People who disregard the law in force will have to take into account the consequences – said inspector Mariusz Ciarka, spokesman of KGP.
