Number of fines handed out to Stib drivers increases
Stib drivers received 899 traffic violation tickets last year, compared to 591 in 2018, according to a report published on Saturday.
This increase can be explained in particular by speeding offences, as the number of 30kph zones in Brussels continues to grow, and other offences related to driving in the pedestrian zone on Chaussée d'Ixelles.
According to statistics released by mobility minister Elke Van den Brandt, there has been an upward trend in the number of tickets and fines handed out in the last three years.
The report published over the weekend states that this increase is mainly due to speeding violations, linked in particular to the increase in 30ph zones and speed cameras in Brussels - but also administrative fines for Stib vehicles (other than buses) using the pedestrian zone in Ixelles.
The total amount of these tickets had amounted to some €42,000, to be paid by those responsible for the offences.
