The RCIPS is strongly urging motorists to take extra care on the roads over the Pirates Week celebrations following what has been a series of tragic months for the road users of Grand Cayman.
Several people have died in collisions and a number of people have had lucky escapes following accidents, said an RCIPS press release.
‘Traditionally we see an increase in the number of incidents taking place on the roads over holiday weekends and this is a trend we do not want to see happening this Pirates Week,’ said Inspector Adrian Barnett of the Traffic Department.
‘I am appealing directly to motorists to exercise caution as they move around the Island to district events and remember that every time they get behind the wheel and drive in a dangerous manner they are risking the lives of themselves, their passengers and other road users.’
Police will be out in force to ensure drivers are abiding by the law.
Inspector Barnett added: ‘The traffic department would like to wish everybody a safe and happy Pirates Week.’
