Seat belts targeted

Police issued 75 tickets for seat belt offences over the Easter long weekend.

‘We aim to encourage the continual use of seat belts for drivers and their passengers and will continue to prosecute those who chose to break the law,’ said Insp. White of George Town Police Station.

‘Unless exempted, every person in a car is legally obliged to wear a seat belt. That includes drivers and front and rear seat passengers.

‘Seat belts save lives and this reckless behaviour puts lives in danger. People need to change their habits immediately. Always wear a seat belt or you could be breaking more than the law. ‘

Police also issued 20 speeding tickets and arrested one person for DUI.

Two non-serious motor vehicle accidents were reported.

Three people were arrested for driving without insurance and having expired registration.
