Police nab speeders

More 100 people were caught speeding over a two week period by the Traffic Management Unit.

The RCIPS carried out a series of Island-wide operations to target motorists who break the speed limits.

‘We are really very disappointed to see that people are continuing to put their lives and the lives of others in danger,’ Commissioner of Police Stuart Kernohan said in a press release.

‘Road safety is an issue for the entire community, not just the police, and it would seem many people are not playing their part. The only way we can reduce the number of collisions taking place is for people to start respecting the road.

‘Speed limits are in place for a reason and are the maximum speed at which you should drive; they are not a target,’ he said.

The release noted the RCIPS will continue with such operations as well as efforts to educate the public on road safety matters.

Streetskill is currently targeting cycle safety and a bike light give-away will be held on 1 March as part of a campaign to help cyclists stay safe.

The Streetskill programme will continue throughout the year targeting drivers through information leaflets, advertising and merchandise.

A number of Streetskill T-shirts are available for purchase. Individuals or businesses wanting to show their support for the campaign by investing in the shirts should contact Deborah Denis on 244-3004 or 926-2145.
