Following a multitude of complaints about traffic violations made by policemen, police Insp.-Gen. Moshe Karadi ordered the Police's Traffic Department on Wednesday to begin writing tickets to policemen who commit violations. Following Karadi's order, the police's Traffic Department sent a memo to all policemen, calling on them to set a personal example and to drive according to the law - which includes wearing seatbelts, speaking on the cellular phone only through a car speaker, and to park only in permissible areas. Two days ago, Israel Radio reported, Karadi spotted two police vehicles belonging to officers, which were parked in illegal spaces. Karadi ordered a parking ticket be given to one of the officers, while he confiscated the other officer's vehicle and transferred it to the Traffic Department.
