Royal Cayman Islands Police said Thursday that the 313 unpaid traffic fines represent 27.4 per cent of all tickets issued from September 2012 to now.
RCIPS Chief Inspector Angelique Howell is encouraging people who receive tickets to read them carefully so that they fully understand the implications of failing to comply with the conditions.
“The ticket can be paid any time up to 10am on the date cited on the ticket,” Ms Howell said. “This date is three weeks from the date of issue.
“Anyone who fails to pay the ticket, or wishes to contest it, must appear in traffic court on the date cited. Failure to pay or appear will result in the issue of an arrest warrant. The issue of such a warrant has serious implications for the offender as he or she will be arrested and immediately brought before the courts to be dealt with.”
