In the vicinity of the coach, 10 inconspicuous police vehicles drove to pull over offenders. All this to increase road safety.

Motorist wants to avoid a ticket, but crashes
Officers in an unmarked police car saw on the A16 near Zevenbergschen Hoek that a driver was not calling hands-free. He received a follow-up signal and at first the driver seemed to comply, but on the exit the driver stepped on the gas and fled the scene. Officers started the chase on the A16 and A17 towards Roosendaal. They lost sight of the car until it turned out that the driver had crashed in Roosendaal. He was now fined not only for not using hands-free calling, but also for causing an accident with injuries and for several traffic offenses during the flight (Article 5A WvW,) such as ignoring a stop sign, overtaking on the right, not giving way, exceeding the maximum speed. .
