The 90-day 'fine strike' will start this week, officers say.
The plan is to stop issuing fines, in a protest against what they say is a heavy workload and the unfair distribution of weekend and night shifts.
Residents, far from welcoming the initiative, mainly fear the move will make traffic unbearable in the city, especially in already traffic-congested central areas, according to a report on the daily 20 Minuten.
