The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service finished up the first week of its annual holiday traffic crackdown with nine arrests and the issuance of more than 100 tickets.
Six of the nine arrests involved suspicion of drink driving, and 40 of the tickets were handed out to speeders, police said.
During the week of 22-29 November, police posted 18 roadblocks around the Islands and said they would continue to be out in force through the Christmas and New Year’s holidays. Fifteen vehicles were searched in those roadblock operations.
The holiday traffic patrols, dubbed Operation Rotate, are part of a campaign that aims to reduce traffic accident figures through enforcement – particularly in relation to drinking and driving – which police said is a primary cause for serious injuries to road users.
