Police issued 187 speeding tickets to drivers over the two-week period of March 17-31.
Most of the speeding offenses occurred on the Linford Pierson and Esterley Tibbetts Highways. Both roads have speed limits of 40 mph and most of those ticketed were caught traveling at speeds in excess of 60 mph, police said, with some drivers traveling as fast as 80 mph.
“We continue to see excessive speeding in these areas and advise the public to always be aware of the speed at which you are traveling,” said Inspector Ian Yearwood of the Traffic and Roads Policing Unit. “Our operations are ongoing and we will not be lenient on offenders. You not only put your life in danger while traveling at such speeds, but also the lives of your passengers and other road users.”
In addition to speeding tickets, officers also prosecuted a number of other traffic offenses, including 40 tickets for excessive tint.
In total, there were 341 speeding tickets issued in March.
