Over the course of last week the RCIPS Traffic Department conducted traffic operations across the island. Between Monday 23 October and Friday 27 October police set up over 10 roadblocks and speed traps and issued a number (78) of tickets. The vast majority (40) of tickets were given for speeding, while there were a number of tickets for tints (17) and driving vehicles that needed to be registered (15).

“These traffic operations are designed to increase the safety of the public by ensuring that the rules of the road are being followed,” said Inspector Ian Yearwood, Head of the Traffic Management Unit. “We all know that speeding is dangerous and puts other road users at risk, but illegal tint also creates unsafe conditions on the road for a number of reasons, and we are therefore stepping up our enforcement in this aspect as well.”

Drivers in illegally tinted vehicles could receive a $150 ticket or be cited for a traffic offence that requires an appearance in court and the possibility of a $150-$2,500 fine.

The RCIPS and the Department of Vehicles and Drivers Licensing (DVDL) are also reminding the public that they should no longer be driving vehicles with temporary license plates. Replacement plates for all the temporary license plates that were issued previously are available at the DVDL for distribution.

“We actually have two rooms full of the un-collected plates,” said David Dixon, Director of the DVDL. “To pick up the new plates, customers must bring their temporary registration plates, windshield coupon (if not expired), and log book to our Crewe Road office to receive their permanent plates.”

Photos of numerous uncollected license plates currently stored at the DVDL are attached.

Police traffic operations are ongoing.
