The Netherlands needs more police officers on the roads to tackle traffic violators, national traffic prosecutor Achilles Damen said to the Telegraaf. According to him, direct confrontation between violators and officers is the most effective way to reduce violations.

"Now with speeding for example, you get a ticket in the mail about two weeks later and you don't even remember that you were driving to fast", Damen said to the newspaper. "Instant confrontation works much better and prevents recurrence." More officers on the roads mean a bigger chance of being pulled over.
