Road Traffic Offences

The BPS can report that last week saw Traffic offenders contribute just over eighteen thousand dollars to the government coffers after appearing in Magistrates Court. Offenders who appeared before the Courts incurred fines for a slew of traffic offences including driving whilst impaired, driving unlicensed and uninsured vehicles, and no driver’s license. Speeding Fines were also heavily represented, with excessive speeds recorded, ranging from 61Kmph, to 82Kmph. Reflecting on these figures, Inspector Charlene Thompson, the officer in charge of the Roads Policing Unit, (RPU), said: “Officers from the Roads Policing Unit are not happy handing out tickets or bringing people to court. We would much prefer to be handing out rewards for safe driving, as we have with our bottled water campaign, which was started last weekend”.
