A major traffic operation on Koningsnacht at Eindhoven’s Kennedylaan collected almost €60,000 in unpaid fines, police announced on Twitter.
The police, working with Belastingdienst (tax service) officials, used a license plate scanner to identify motorists with outstanding fines.
Drivers were also required to take a breathalyser test. Three motorists suspected of intoxication were taken into custody.
A total of sixteen vehicles were seized by authorities, five of those immediately.
Two taxi drivers were also arrested for driving without the necessary paperwork.
