Between Nov. 29 and Dec. 23, a total of 38 people were arrested for various traffic offenses during the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service’s ‘Stay Alive’ traffic safety campaign.
According to the RCIPS, 25 of the arrests were for drunk driving. The other 13 arrests were for offenses that included driving while disqualified, without insurance or without a valid driver’s license.
Police also prosecuted 64 people for driving while talking on a hand-held cellphone, 45 people for speeding and 23 for failing to wear a seat belt.
No fatal accidents were reported during the period through Monday. There was one report of a one-car accident Monday just before 1 a.m. on Bodden Town Road. A Hyundai Matrix heading west on Bodden Town Road flipped onto its side about 200 yards from the local police station.
Although damage to the car was serious, the driver escaped with what police described as minor injuries.
