DUI arrests continue to rise
More than 40 people have been locked up on suspicion of drink driving since the start of this year’s festive safety campaign by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
A total of 44 arrests for DUI have been made since the start of the RCIPS Operation Christmas Cracker in late November.
“Forty-four people who thought that the traffic Law did not apply to them are facing court in the New Year,” said RCIPS Chief inspector Angelique Howell. “We have already locked up more people this year for DUI than we did during the complete safety campaign period last year. The figure is deplorable and a sad indictment on the behavior of drivers in the Cayman Islands.
“New Year’s Eve will soon be here and again people will be attending parties, or drinking in their homes. Once again we will be targeting drink drivers and taking those selfish and irresponsible people who continue to put their own lives and the lives of other road users at risk, off the streets. So if you really want to have a happy and safe New Year take a cab, designate a driver or use the National Drug Council purple ribbon bus.”
