Traffic police regulate Iran's dress code

Help

Iran's road and safety police have been handed a new responsibility. They have the power to fine Iranians who are not dressed according to the rules of Islam.

Traditionally this had been the job of the moral police, but now a traffic police officer can give Iranians two fines in one, a speeding fine and an un-Islamic dress code fine.
