Checks on the buses
are carried out by inspectors, specialized Tep staff that in addition to this task work as traffic wardens, checking for abusive parking at bus stops and on bus lanes. In the performance of their duties inspectors are public officials to whom, upon request, passengers must by law provide their personal details. Providing false personal details during a bus check is a criminal offence.
