Brac targets child road safety

Cayman Brac residents are being warned to shape up when it comes to child safety or face the consequences of prosecution. The warning comes from the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service which is gearing up for a crackdown on people who carry children unrestrained in vehicles.

‘We have carried out targeted traffic operations such as this in the past which resulted in some improvement,’ explained Sergeant Matthew Dawson. ‘But unfortunately some motorists appear to be slipping into old habits again. We have sent letters home with students and put posters up but some drivers appear oblivious to our efforts.’

Over the next few weeks officers will target and prosecute drivers who fail to ensure the safety of their child by not securing them into vehicles. The move comes after residents and education officials voiced concerns about insecure passengers.
