Police to renew crackdown on speeding

Published:Wednesday | August 7, 2013 | 9:29 AM

The police traffic division is to begin a renewed drive today against speeding on the nation’s road in light of a number of recent fatal crashes.



Head of the Division, Senior Superintendent Radcliffe Lewis says as of this morning the police will be taking a zero tolerance approach in relation to speed limits.



The Senior Superintendent, Lewis, says speeding plays a major part in many road accidents.



Lewis says the operation will be used to resume the crackdown on persons with outstanding traffic tickets and warrants.



He notes that the focus will be on those tickets issued after September 21, 2010.



Last year, the government offered a six month traffic ticket amnesty to motorists with outstanding tickets issued on or before September 20, 2010.



However, there were several hiccups with motorists complaining that they had paid tickets which appeared as unpaid.
